A Fairfax Reckless Driving Attorney Can Help You

Posted by George L. Freeman | Feb 04, 2020 | 0 Comments

Fairfax County has over one million residents and a lot of roads!  Those roads are patrolled by the Fairfax County Police Department, the Virginia State Police, Town of Herndon and Town of Vienna police departments, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department, Metro Transit Police, the Fairfax City Police Department - and the list could go on.

If you are caught speeding in Fairfax County, there can be serious consequences.  First, a reckless driving by speed conviction could result in demerit points on your DMV record.  Rapid point accumulation could result in DMV taking your license.

Second, reckless driving is a misdemeanor, which means it is a crime.  On top of that, reckless driving in Fairfax (and all over Virginia) is a Class 1 Misdemeanor.  This means upon conviction, you could face up to 12 months in jail, a fine of up to $2,500.00 and the loss of your license for six months.  It would be up to the judge, with a few exceptions, whether to issue a restricted license.

Lastly, your insurance rates could go up for a reckless driving conviction.  If you hold a CDL a conviction could jeopardize your job!
