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:
- increased insurance rates
- license suspension
- points on your driving record
- high fines

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.

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.
