Prince George General District Court
Prince George holds traffic court twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays. Mondays are typically reserved for Virginia State Troopers. Wednesdays are reserved for Prince George police department traffic cases. Further, there are two separate judges sitting on Mondays and Wednesdays in Prince George. Obviously, these judges can operate very differently at times.
Additionally, each judge is particular in what they like to do in certain situations. Further, the judges can be particular about what they will and will not accept as evidence in a case. Naturally, failure to properly follow the requirements of the court will often result in a conviction. Clearly, it is very important to retain an attorney familiar with each judge. Of course, this will ensure you get the best possible outcome for your case.
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.
