What exactly is reckless driving? Most people know that reckless driving involves speeding, but they are not sure what “kind” of speeding it involves. Reckless driving is defined as driving more than 20 mph over the posted speed limit or driving over 80 mph on any road in general. In areas where the speed is not clearly posted or where signs are obstructed by trees, bushes, or other blocking factors, it is easy to go over 20mph of the posted speed limit. If you’re in a hurry, sometimes you may not even realize you are speeding because you are so completely focused on arriving at your destination. A knowledgeable attorney with our firm knows the law pertaining to reckless driving and can fight for your rights in court in order to help you avoid any unjust penalties. If you have any questions about these laws and what penalties you could be facing if you are found to be in violation of any of them, please visit the Virginia DMV site for more information.
Being charged with reckless driving is no small matter. Besides being a misdemeanor and facing jail time, you could find that your everyday activities are impaired as a result of a reckless driving conviction. For example, if you like to travel in your spare time, a reckless driving conviction can greatly hinder this. Some countries, such as Canada, don’t allow convicted criminals to travel within their borders. Some rental cars companies can access may choose to deny you a rental car based on your conviction.
