Virginia Traffic Violations
Many drivers in Virginia erroneously believe that reckless driving violations are simple moving violations that can be cleared up by paying a fine or taking a driver safety course. However, many traffic related violations are treated more seriously and can result in severe consequences, including jail time, vehicle forfeiture, and/or license suspension.
Common criminal driving offenses in Virginia can involve the following:
- Driving with a suspended license
- Reckless driving/reckless operation
- Vehicular assault
- Leaving a scene/hit and run
- Operating a vehicle while under the influence
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Vehicular homicide
- Street or drag racing
- Willful or wanton operation of a vehicle
- Texting while driving
- Fleeing and eluding/failure to comply with a police order
Because of the broad scope of traffic violations that can lead to serious charges, you must seek the representation of a competent Fairfax County traffic lawyer who understands the intricacies and subtleties of the legal system. The attorneys at Jezic & Moyse LLC. will diligently analyze your case and aggressively challenge the evidence in your specific situation.
Reckless Driving Penalties
Virginia treats reckless driving as a serious criminal violation, and the state can levy steep penalties, even for first time convictions. Moreover, you will carry a record with the conviction for 11 years, and this will affect your ability to secure employment or auto insurance in the future. A conviction could cause your insurance premiums to escalate for years to come.
