Virginia Beach Reckless Driving Attorney

Virginia law elevates some highway and traffic violations, such as reckless driving, to a criminal charge, which may carry more serious penalties and longer-lasting consequences. As a criminal offense, a reckless driving charge can be more than a minor inconvenience and carry penalties including significant fines, lost driving privileges and, in more serious cases, even jail time. At the law office of Garrett Law Group, PLC in Virginia Beach, our traffic defense lawyers represent clients charged with reckless driving. As a proven and experienced law firm our traffic attorneys can help you fight for a reduction from reckless driving to a minor violation, or dismissal of the charges.

Can I Be Charged With Reckless Driving If I Wasn’t Speeding?

Yes. There are no less than FOURTEEN specifically mentioned acts under the Virginia traffic code that constitute “reckless driving”; only one of those charges deals with speeding, i.e., exceeding the posted speed limit. The remaining thirteen charges deal specifically with the manner in which the driver is operating the vehicle. Reckless driving can be charged for anyone operating a motor vehicle in such a manner to endanger life, limb or property. This is a very technical area of traffic law and requires a thorough investigation of your facts and circumstances. If you have been charged with or arrested for a reckless driving violation in Virginia Beach, call our reckless driving lawyers at (757) 422-4646, or contact us online.
