If you have any questions about what constitutes reckless driving or the penalties you could facing, please contact us for a free consultation of your case or visit Wikipedia for more information. If you don’t have a good understanding of these laws and what they could mean for you and your ability to drive in the future, you could end up getting a very serious charge and not even really know it.

Reckless driving is a serious criminal offense. Unlike speeding, this isn’t solved with mailing in a check. Instead, you are facing misdemeanor charges and the potential for some severe penalties. Under Virginia law, you could be slapped with up to one year in jail, $2,500 in fines, and a suspended license. These sort of consequences can have untold lasting effects on your life. A South Hill reckless driving attorney can be there to help mitigate these penalties and thereby potentially minimize the effect this charge has on the rest of your life.
