I was driving to a relatives house late one Saturday night from Maryland. I got caught going 89 in a 55 on Route 28. I could of sworn the speed limit was 65 on Route 28 but none the less, I was speeding and I know I shouldn’t have been. It was late, I was tired, there were no cars around me and I was trying to get where I was going as soon as possible. So please no lectures about how I shouldn’t have been speeding, thank you, I am aware. My question is what should I be expecting on my court date of Dec 6th? I’ve never been stopped by the police or had any speeding tickets before. Only one parking ticket in DC, which I paid! I’ve been told Virginia traffic laws can be extremely harsh. I’m a working, going to school, full time mother in her mid twenties with a clean record. Should I lawyer up and try to fight this? Or just admit my guilt and hope the judge has mercy?? What should I be expecting for the price of fines as well? Do they make you pay right then and there? Or can you set up some kind of payment plan? Thanks in advance for all the help!

In Virginia speeding in excess of 20 mph over the limit or over 80 mph is statutory reckless driving. If you are convicted as charged your driving record will show a conviction for reckless driving.

The maximum statutory penalty is twelve months in jail, six months suspension of your Virginia driver’s license or six months suspension of your privilege to operate a motor vehicle in Virginia if you are licensed elsewhere, plus a fine of up to $ 2,500. If your privilege to operate a motor vehicle in Virginia is suspended for any period of time, Virginia DMV will report the suspension to the state that issued your driver’s license. Most states honor suspensions from other states and will suspend licenses of their own citizens upon notification of an out of state suspension.

The actual penalty which you can realistically expect varies considerably by jurisdiction. In some counties the traffic court judges will begin to incarcerate at 90 mph; at speeds in excess of 100 mph incarceration is a virtual certainly in most jurisdictions.

Some jurisdictions will suspend driver’s licenses (or the privilege to drive in Virginia for those licensed elsewhere) at speeds of 85 mph. At 90 mph or greater such a suspension is quite likely.

Some jurisdictions will permit those charged with reckless by speed to attend a driver improvement program and dismiss the charge upon successful completion. Some will not. Those that do generally have a cut-off speed for eligibility for this kind of leniency.

Prosecutors and judges in some jurisdictions will agree to reduce the charged speed on the ticket so that the conviction will be reported as a simple speeding ticket and not reckless driving. Others won’t.

Your ability to get some kind of leniency in these cases depends upon the policies in the jurisdiction where you’re charged and your prior driving record.

If you are licensed in Virginia, the police officer will likely have a copy of your Virginia DMV driving record with him in court. If you are licensed elsewhere you should obtain a copy of your driving record from the state that issued your drivers license and bring it to court or give it to your attorney.

As far as hiring an attorney, reckless driving in Virginia is a class one misdemeanor. You are legally required to appear in court. Having said that, as a practical matter, out of state drivers routinely hire local attorneys to appear for them and rarely get in trouble for not showing up in person. At speeds of 90 mph and higher, or if you are accused of going 30 mph or more in excess of the posted limit, you should consult with an attorney about the practical necessity of appearing. Some judges will issue a capias, or bench warrant, for your arrest if you don’t show up for a serious reckless driving case. If you are pulled over again in Virginia this could result in your incarceration without bail until the issue of your nonappearance is resolved.

This isn’t the end of the world, but it’s very serious. Breathe in, breathe out, and hope for a judge with an understanding ear.

A reckless driving conviction gives you a criminal record, which can impact all kinds of things in the future. (credit checks, job applications, etc.) Seriously, Virginia is really nasty when it comes to reckless driving.

Lawyer up. Absolutely. Find one that knows the court system in that county, as judges tend to be pretty consistent in how they respond to people. A couple hundred bucks now can save thousands in fines, avoid jail time, and hopefully keep you from getting that misdemeanor conviction. It’s a no-brainer, honestly.
