Reckless Driving

Reckless driving violations are very serious charges in Virginia. As a result, a conviction carries penalties like fines, license suspension, and class 1 misdemeanor.  Moreover, these consequences can have very long lasting effects. Additionally, this can burden even the most proactive motorist.


Many drivers have exceeded posted speed limits during their driving history. However, speeding ticket charges in Virginia can vary significantly depending on the nature of the offense.  Certainly, more extreme cases are charged as reckless driving by speed, which is a class 1 misdemeanor.  Admittedly, speeding is an infraction rather than a misdemeanor. Even so, a conviction can still carry very serious and lasting consequences including:

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


Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious traffic violation in Virginia. Consequently, a DUI conviction has long lasting consequences. Additionally, it is often a complicated path to trial that can be confusing. More, this process is very stressful for individuals facing these charges. Importantly, an experienced Virginia DUI attorney will help minimize the chance of negative outcome.
