Reckless driving in this situation is a criminal misdemeanor in NY and I don't believe that this is in a normal traffic court. If it goes well with your lawyer you might be able to get to to just a normal traffic violation, avoid a criminal record, lessen points and keep your auto insurance from being raised.

NY Penalties for excessive speeding

Speed Maximum Sentence Approximate Fine Driving Points
11-20 mph over 15 days $300 4
21-30 mph over 15 days $300 plus 6
31-40 mph over 30 days $600 plus 8
41+ mph over 30 days $600 plus 11
