Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake Reckless Driving Defense Attorneys

Dedicated Representation for Traffic Violations

Reckless driving is taken very seriously in Virginia. While driving in a manner that is clearly likely to put others at risk is considered reckless, so too is speeding, even in cases where a person may only be travelling 10 miles per hour (mph) over the speed limit. These charges can result in heavy fines, suspension of your driver's license, increased insurance premiums and possible jail time. Howard Miller and Howard "Hank" Marx, as Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake reckless driving and traffic defense lawyers will fight to protect your driver's license and your rights.

If you have been cited for driving recklessly, it is important to seek legal representation right away. Contact Howard Miller and Howard "Hank" Marx, Virginia traffic violation defense attorneys, online or call 757-588-2300 for a free initial consultation to discuss your situation.

Reckless Driving in Virginia

Virginia defines reckless driving as "operating a motor vehicle at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person." This may encompass many different types of driving behaviors, including:

  • Driving 20 mph or more over the posted speed limit
  • Driving 80 mph or more, even in areas where the posted speed limit is 70 mph
  • Passing or failing to yield to an emergency vehicle
  • Improper passing
  • Changing lanes without signaling
  • Driving too fast for road conditions
  • Racing

Driving recklessly involves more than a mere traffic violation ticket. It is classified as a class 1 misdemeanor. Many people, especially those from out of state, think that they have merely been given a speeding ticket or have committed other minor traffic offenses. The fact is a conviction may result in a $2,500 fine, a six-month suspension of your license and points added to your driver's record, which can result in a longer suspension and up to one year in jail. If you are charged with a child in the car, you may also face child neglect charges. That is why having experienced legal representation is important.
