While many drivers have exceeded posted speed limits during their driving history, speeding ticket charges in Virginia can vary significantly depending on the nature of the offense. More extreme cases are charged as reckless driving by speed, which is a class 1 misdemeanor.
Though speeding is an infraction rather than a misdemeanor, a conviction can still carry very serious and lasting consequences including:
- license suspension
- points on your driving record
- high fines
- increased insurance rates

Increasing Your Chances for a Positive Outcome
Clients can often complete certain tasks prior to the court date in order to present evidence in mitigation of the offense:
Why do I Need Mitigation Evidence?
Providing mitigation evidence is something that not all attorneys require and can often lead to better results in court. Mattox Law represents individuals charged with speeding offense who are both Virginia drivers as well as out of state drivers. All but five states belong to an Interstate Drivers License Compact, which mandates that these member states communicate traffic convictions between states. Consequences of a speeding conviction in Virginia can extend to your home state, which can bring even more serious punishments. Seeking professional legal representation is the recommended method for avoiding additional penalties and punishments.
