  • Reckless driving, by definition, is driving with a wanton or willful disregard for the safety of persons or property. Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 21-901.1.
  • Various consistent and related enactments, although made at different times and without reference to one another, nevertheless should be harmonized as much as possible. After all, it is presumed that the general assembly acted with full knowledge of prior legislation and intended statutes that affect the same subject matter to blend into a consistent and harmonious body of law. As a result, statutes on the same subject are to be read together and harmonized to the extent possible, reading them so as to avoid rendering either of them, or any portion, meaningless, surplusage, superfluous, or nugatory.
