Virginia Traffic Defense: What is Reckless Driving?

What is Reckless Driving?  Do you need a traffic defense attorney to help?  What can happen if you are convicted?  Why was I charged?  These are a lot of questions the reckless driving lawyers in our Northern Virginia, Richmond, and Tidewater area office locations are asked when discussing a case.

Reckless Driving is most commonly cited when you are alleged to have driven 20 miles per hour faster than the posted speed limit.  It can be a lot more than that though.  Virginia has 15 code sections that encompass Reckless Driving.

In addition to speeding they can be issued for any one of the following reasons:

Racing
Passing or Overtaking an Emergency Vehicle
Passing a school bus
Passing on the crest of a hill
Passing at a railroad crossing
Passing two vehicles abreast
Driving two vehicles abreast
Driving too fast for conditions
Failing to give a proper signal
Faulty Brake / Improper Control
On parking lots
With an obstructed view
Generally, i.e. allegedly driving which endangered the life, limb, or property of anther.

That answers the first question of what is Reckless Driving?  Do you need a traffic defense or Reckless Driving defense attorney to help? Yes, in most circumstances. We cannot anticipate what occurred in your case on our website, but we will provide a free consultation, in person or by phone, to determine whether it is necessary for you to have an attorney.

In most jurisdictions, the state is going to have an attorney prosecuting the case and you need an attorney defending your case.  The factors that can impact the result of your case is only limited by our imagination – don’t assume you are guilty because you were charged. Call the experienced traffic defense and reckless driving defense attorneys at Boone Beale today to discuss your case for free.
