Reckless Driving Tickets Carry Some Of The Worst Punishments
Traffic offenses can run the gamut from simple tickets that can be paid out of court to those that carry a substantial risk of jail, high fines and loss of license.
Reckless driving is a common charge that is much more serious than most people think. A conviction for reckless driving in Virginia can carry up to 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine. You could also lose your license. We know how important driving is to our clients, and we put great emphasis on helping them maintain their driving privileges. Common bases for reckless driving charges include:
- Speeding more than 20 mph above the speed limit
- Changing multiple lanes at the same time
- Failing to change lanes to provide more room when law enforcement has someone pulled over on the side of the road
Counsel with familiarity in this area is important if you have been charged with reckless driving and/or:
- Driving on a suspended license
- Aggressive driving
- Eluding police
- Hit and run
- Leaving the scene of an accident
