Reckless Driving by Speed in Fairfax, VA – Why do I need a reckless driving lawyer in virginia?
Why? Because in Virginia, Reckless Driving by Speed is a Class 1 Misdemeanor. A Class 1 Misdemeanor is a criminal charge. It is in the same class of criminal charges as misdemeanor possession of drugs, DWI, assault and battery, and petit larceny (shoplifting). The Virginia legislature does not appear to be interested in changing this classification. The threshold for a speeding ticket to fall into the Reckless Driving category in Virginia is among the lowest in the entire country. Speeding in excess of 80 mph, regardless of the speed limit, or speeding 20 mph over the speed limit, puts the charge in the Class 1 Misdemeanor category. The maximum penalties for Reckless Driving by Speed are a $2,500 fine, 12 months in jail, and a 6 month driver’s license suspension. In addition, there are court costs, potential insurance premium increases, and the existence of a misdemeanor conviction on any future criminal background check.
