Get Answers About Reckless Driving
If you have been charged with reckless driving on Virginia’s highways, there’s a good chance you are an out-of-state driver or this is your first time appearing in court.
The first thing you should know, of course, is that reckless driving is a serious offense – more than a traffic ticket. Most courts will not impose jail time, but it is a possibility under the reckless driving statute. It all depends on your driving record, your speed, and other circumstances. An attorney can help you overcome this situation by working to reduce or even dismiss your reckless driving charge, all without you having to come to court.
Here are the most common questions clients ask about reckless driving:
- How can I appeal a reckless driving conviction?
- Is my ticket reckless driving or speeding?
- Is 20 mph over the speed limit reckless driving or a speeding ticket?
- Does a reckless driving conviction show up on a background check?
- Do I need a lawyer for a reckless driving charge?
- Can I get my reckless driving charge dismissed by attending driver’s school?
- Will I get jail time for reckless driving in Roanoke?
