Woodbridge Reckless Driving Lawyer
Many of us have been or will at some point be pulled over by police while driving our cars. We get a traffic ticket for a minor offense, and drive onwards. The only damage done is the annoyance of a warning, or perhaps a small fine. But sometimes, law enforcement considers our error more serious. In these cases, a charge of reckless driving may be issued. Criminal prosecution is the outcome of such charges. If you find yourself charged with a misdemeanor traffic violation, a Woodbridge reckless driving lawyer might be able to help you.
What Constitutes Reckless Driving in Woodbridge?
You may be wondering exactly what you did that constitutes reckless driving. The offense is not a simple, singular act, but can be a variety of things like:
- Aggressive driving (such as weaving in and out of traffic)
- Passing a stopped school bus
- Passing a vehicle on a curve
- Violations of excessive speed (20 mph or more than the posted limit)
- Failure to signal
- Failure to yield to an emergency vehicle
- Drag racing
Because reckless driving is a criminal offense in Virginia, a conviction can have serious consequences. You can be fined hundreds of dollars – if not thousands – of dollars. You can lose your license. You can even be sentenced to prison time. Don’t accept these consequences blindly – you may be able to protect yourself from their impact.
