QWould trial for these two offenses be considered double jeopardy?

I was involved in an accident were I lost control of my car and struck another vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle told the police I was trying to kill him so they arrested myself and him for aggressive driving (I realize this makes absolutely no sense).



After requesting a jury trial because I do not trust small town judges in Georgia (long story speeding ticket related), the prosecutor added on reckless driving among some other small charges.



I realize the extra charges (multiple of which have absolutely nothing to do with the story given to the officer) were a way of trying to scare me into pleading guilty, but isnt a reckless driving charge a more generalized version of the aggressive driving charge, considering I was obeying all traffic laws in so far as actually happened and to the knowledge of both the prosecutor and the police officers?
