- Failure to yield the right of way
- Driving over 20 mph per hour over the posted speed limit
- Driving over 80 mph on any roadway
- Passing or attempting to pass two other vehicles abreast, moving in the same direction
- Driving with an obstructed view

Many people don’t understand the value in hiring a lawyer; after all, it’s just reckless driving; no more than a glorified speeding ticket, right? Wrong. Reckless driving is a criminal charge; as such, having legal representation is a wise choice. A South Hill traffic lawyer can file papers with the court (and knowing which forms and when to file them is a complicated matter), can prepare compelling arguments, and can deftly negotiate with opposing counsel to help you avoid penalties that are not conducive to your life, such as heavy fines and jail time. You can rest assured that the state will have attorneys advocating for it; you would benefit to have one advocating for you. A South Hill Traffic Attorney can do just that and your case’s outcome might be better than you expect. If you have any other questions about these laws and what it takes to constitute a violation, please visit the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles site for more information.
