Most people who are pulled over for speeding do not expect to be treated like a criminal. However, with the tough traffic laws in Virginia, something seemingly as simple as speeding can lead to criminal charges. A reckless driving conviction may result in fines, probation, and jail time, as well as a criminal record that can hinder future opportunities. For the best defense against traffic violations, contact a skilled Alexandria traffic lawyer with our firm for a free consultation of your case and a review of the strategy they can put in place moving forward.
Whether a driver is late, distracted, or unaware of the posted limit, speeding is a common traffic offense. For many people, getting pulled over for speeding results in a traffic ticket that they will simply pay rather than fight in court. For others, speeding results in a criminal charge of reckless driving. Under Virginia traffic law, speeds that exceed 20 mph over the posted limit are considered reckless. Speeding in neighborhoods or through school zones can lead a driver to be charged with a criminal traffic offense, even if the speed was relatively low. Not all reckless driving charges come from high-speed driving or drag racing, but even these more challenging cases can be skillfully handled by a qualified member of our legal team. Scheduling a free consultation with our attorneys will give you the opportunity to have any questions you might have answered, and to find out what type of strategy they might use to fight whatever lies ahead of you. You can also visit the Virginia DMV site for more information about these charges and how they might affect your life if you are accused of violating them.
