If you are charged with a traffic violation, you are not alone. Many of us are pulled over and given a ticket at least once in our lives. Typically, the worst that can happen is we get a warning, or possibly a fine. However, criminal prosecution can come from more serious offenses and violations. In events like these, a Quantico reckless driving lawyer can represent you in court and help to protect your rights and privileges.
Many people who are charged with reckless driving are shocked to learn that it is not merely a moving violation or traffic offense. There are also numerous alleged infractions that can be charged as reckless driving. That is because the charge incorporates many different violations that, according to the Commonwealth, are seen as particularly dangerousc. For example, driving too fast (20 mph or more than the posted limit) can be considered reckless driving. Other examples include failing to signal, or yield to an emergency vehicle. Finally, aggressive driving such as drag racing or weaving in and out of traffic may also constitute “recklessness.” No matter which of these violations is noted on your summons to appear in court,, an attorney can explain your defense options.
