In California, there's no magic number of miles per hour over the limit that turns it into reckless driving. There would have to be proof that you acted in "willfull or wanton disregard" for the safety of others, knowing that it was likely that someone or something would be hurt. Speed alone is never enough, although it is a factor.

Still, it's no fun (and very expensive) getting a lot of tickets. You should lay low for a while, at least until you can get rid of your other pending ticket! And, you should consider hiring a lawyer who specializes in tickets to try to take care of these.
