Reckless Driving

Reckless Driving is one of the primary offenses I see in Caroline.  The severity of this offense comes as quite a surprise to many of my clients.  The most prevalent reckless driving statute is Virginia Code § 46.2-862 Exceeding Speed Limit.  This statute defines reckless driving as:

A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who drives a motor vehicle on the highways in the Commonwealth (i) at a speed of twenty miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable maximum speed limit or (ii) in excess of eighty miles per hour regardless of the applicable maximum speed limit.

As a class 1 misdemeanor, reckless driving carries very significant penalties including a $2,500 fine, six month license suspension, and 12 months in jail.  There are also several secondary consequences such as:

                           o   Increased insurance premiums costing you hundreds of dollars!

o   Points on your driving record lead to license suspensions!

o   Failed criminal background checks affecting employment and security clearance opportunities!

Caroline General District Court

It is vitally important to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced in Caroline County.  The judge in Caroline can be particular about the way he or she likes certain things completed and presented to the court.  I often have my client complete some of these items prior to court and it is important to ensure everything is completed properly.  Below please find links to blog articles describing some of the mitigation evidence I use to defend my clients.  Please give me a email at trey@mattoxlawpc.com or call at (804)-451-6033 for addition suggestions on mitigation evidence for your Caroline traffic case.
