Effective and Affordable Reckless Driving, DUI, Traffic and Criminal Defense
In VA Reckless Driving is a Crime
Virginia has some of the toughest traffic laws in the United States. Reckless driving is a class 1 misdemeanor and a conviction will result in a permanent criminal record. A class 1 misdemeanor in Virginia is punishable by up to 12 months in jail, a fine of up to $2500 and a six month license suspension.For Virginia drivers convicted of reckless driving, the DMV will assign six demerit points and the conviction will appear on their driving record for 11 years.
Fortunately, most reckless driving convictions do not result in either a jail sentence or a license suspension. In addition, it is often possible in many circumstances for a reckless driving charge to be reduced to a non-criminal traffic infraction or dismissed.
