Reckless Driving

<h1>Reckless Driving</h1>

In Virginia, if a driver is stopped going 20 mph over the speed limit or in excess of 80 mph, he or she will be charged with reckless driving. It is a common charge, but it carries substantial penalties. Our criminal defense attorneys can guide you through this process while fighting to protect your driving privileges.

The attorneys at Cravens and Noll have tried countless reckless driving cases over the past 15 years. Our skill in this practice area is widely recognized, we receive several client referrals each year from other firms throughout the country. Clients rely on our knowledge of the law and our experience in this practice area for a unique and effective defense.

As a major population center, the Richmond area is crossed with several well-traveled roads, including:

  • I-95, which is the major north-south highway
  • I-64, which is the major east-west highway
  • Route 288, which serves as a connector between I-95 and I-64

Both local commuters and out-of-state drivers use these highways on a regular basis.

Reckless driving is a Class 1 misdemeanor, (a criminal conviction) that carries stiff penalties for those who are convicted in Virginia. Penalties include up to $2,500 in fines, up to one year in jail, and loss of driving privileges for up to one year. If these charges are not treated seriously and vigorously defended, they can remain on a person’s record as a criminal conviction. Contact our firm immediately if you have been ticketed.

Cravens and Noll has a wealth of experience defending drivers from out of state. It is not uncommon for drivers to pass through a state and receive a traffic ticket.
