I don't know about your state, but in Pennsylvania "reckless driving" is a fairly serious offense. If this is your first offense, chances are a lawyer will be able to get you off the points/suspension and probably lessen your fine a bit. Lawyers don't come cheap, though.
Otherwise, I would just go to court and be honest. Depending on how old you are, if this is your first offense, and much more, chances are you'll face the fine only. Points will probably be reduced or dropped and I wouldn't worry about a suspension.
