The rocker's attorney Philip Cohen entered the plea to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving "with driving under the influence conditions" Thursday in Malibu. The singer initially faced drunken-driving charges, but the revised charge doesn't include any allegation of alcohol impairment.
The "Jessie's Girl" singer was arrested in May 2011 after deputies spotted him speeding in his 1963 Corvette on Pacific Coast Highway.
District attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison says Springfield will be on informal probation for three years and is required to attend a three-month alcohol education program.
Springfield didn't attend Thursday's court hearing.
