Improper driving. Provides that a person may be charged with the offense of improper driving when his conduct is of the kind that constitutes reckless driving but when his degree of culpability is slight. Currently, a law-enforcement officer is not able to charge a person with improper driving, but a charge of reckless driving may be reduced to improper driving by the court or the attorney for the Commonwealth.
