A “Minor” Traffic Offense Can Haunt You

At the time you are pulled over by a law enforcement officer, a traffic offense may seem like nothing more than a temporary inconvenience. However, traffic violations can have costly consequences and cause long-term problems.

Depending on the offense in question, penalties can include fines, points being assessed to your license, increased insurance rates, the loss of your driver’s license and even time spent in jail.

Reckless Driving In Virginia

Reckless driving is a criminal charge in the Commonwealth of Virginia. There are many ways you can be cited for reckless driving, including allegations of excessive speeding or operating your vehicle in a way that brings serious risk to people or property.

Reckless driving by speed is defined as 20 miles per hour over the speed limit or any speed in excess of 80 miles per hour. There are many places in the Commonwealth of Virginia that have speed limit of 70 miles per hour. This means that you can be cited for reckless driving for exceeding the speed limit by as little as 11 miles per hour!

Penalties for reckless driving are steep, including the possibility of up to 12 months in jail and a fine as high as $2,500.

Don’t Go Into Court Alone

Simply paying the fine and moving on won’t solve your problems, and going into court alone can make things worse.
