How To Fight A Reckless Driving Charge

In Virginia, reckless driving can often have unexpected consequences. There are over fifteen statutes in the Virginia Code that cover reckless driving. Violating any of those statutes is a Class 1 Misdemeanor.

Reckless driving comes in many forms, such as driving at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person may manifest it. If you have faulty equipment, don’t use your turn signal, or have passengers/objects in the vehicle that obstruct your view, this can be considered reckless driving.

If you get a ticket for speeding, your ticket may be stacked with a reckless charge as well, which can be financially crippling in the long run.
