Reckless Driving Lawyer in Virginia Beach
Protecting Your Record in Norfolk
Surprise. Reckless Driving is a Class 1 Misdemeanor in Virginia. It is not just a traffic offense or moving violation. If you are convicted that makes a criminal record. Obviously, that has far reaching implications for employment, advancement, insurance premiums, and security clearances. Getting a reckless driving ticket is not hard to do. Jurisdictions like Southampton County, Virginia are famous for Reckless Driving tickets. 20 miles per hour over the legal limit or anything over 80 miles per hour could mean a reckless driving ticket. Even if the speed limit is 65 and you travel at 81. That’s 16 miles per hour over the limit and reckless in Virginia. Let’s protect your record. Yes, we can help.
