Fortunately, a Springfield traffic lawyer like those with our firm has also heard all of the reasons for reckless driving and has the knowledge to be able to work with them all and can work with you to see that your reckless driving charge is either dismissed or mitigated to a less damaging charge.
Experienced Springfield Speeding Lawyer
Reckless driving is a difficult charge to understand because it can encompass a myriad of different infractions. It is also complex because the line that separates a criminal charge from just a typical traffic ticket is very thin as well. Our attorneys understand these laws and what makes a violation serious enough to be accompanied by a criminal conviction. They include but are not limited to:
- 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
- Drag racing
- Failing to give a proper signal
These are but a few of the various actions that can occur in order for one to be charged with reckless driving. One of the experienced attorneys with our firm will be familiar with all of the different things that can make up a reckless driving charge and can work vigorously to see that you are not unfairly penalized for your actions. By examining the evidence and through negotiating for dismissal or a lighter charge, we know what it takes to keep your record clean and to make it so your life is not irreparably damaged. If you have any questions about these laws that we have not answered here, you can contact us to schedule a fee consultation. You can also get more information from the Virginia DMV site.
