They make you pay the fine first which acts as collateral for the hearing. In NJ you get a court date right on the citation. In PA you have to either plead guilty or not guilty first.

Sure, but they dont have to ask them. There are plenty of reasons you want to ask those questions but there may be good reasons not to ask them.

Plead not guilty because there is a 6 month suspension if he gets convicted of reckless driving. Get an experienced lawyer to go to court with him for the best chance it working out. I always recommend to my client to take a defensive driving class to make it look better. Good luck!
