Experienced Fairfax Speeding Ticket Lawyer

Virginia traffic law has at least twenty sections pertaining to reckless driving. Actions considered to be criminally dangerous include passing illegally and a failure to yield. Perhaps the most commonly charged criminal traffic offense, however, is speed-related reckless driving. There are three types of reckless driving by speed:

  • Driving in excess of 20 mph above the posted limit
  • Driving in excess of 80 mph, regardless of the posted limit
  • Driving too fast for road conditions

If you are charged with reckless driving as a result of speed or the other reasons enumerated in the state code, you could be facing up to one year in jail, a $2,500 fine, and a six month suspension of your driver’s license. For your best chance of avoiding these consequences, it is wise to seek representation from a qualified Fairfax speeding ticket attorney. If you have any questions about these laws and what you could be facing during the course of a trial, please contact our firm for more information about the services we can provide in your defense. You can also visit the Virginia DMV website for more information about specific traffic charges and what you might be facing if you are found to be in violation of any of them.
