Greensville County is located north of Northampton County in North Carolina sitting on the Virginia/North Carolina border with the Interstate I-95 extending in a north-south direction through the county. I-95 is one of the most heavily trafficked Interstates with over 70,000 vehicles using this corridor each day. Additionally, highway 58 also runs in an east-west direction through Greenville County, providing an additional heavily-trafficked corridor, As a result, Greensville County is a common place to receive a traffic violation; county deputies and State troopers routinely enforce Virginia’s strict driving laws.
Have You Been Charged with Reckless Driving as a Result of Speeding?
Out-of-state drivers not familiar with Virginia laws may be surprised to know that exceeding the speed limit in Virginia may result in more than just receiving a simple speeding ticket. If a driver is cited for going 81 mph or more in a 70 mile-per-hour zone, the driver may be cited for reckless driving, not just speeding. This is a much more serious consequence.
In Virginia, reckless driving is considered a criminal misdemeanor, much like drunk driving. The potential ramifications are thus much more severe than they are for going a few miles over the limit at a lower speed. If you’ve been ticketed for speeding (and possibly reckless driving), I and my firm can help.

Contesting Your Speeding or Reckless Driving Ticket – It’s Important to Understand the Deadlines
For every ticket there will be a specified time limit in which the ticket itself may be contested. In some cases, a court appearance may be required – either by you or your attorney. It is critical that tickets not be ignored; otherwise, adverse consequences may result.
In years past, non-Virginia residents might assume that speeding and reckless driving tickets could be ignored on the basis that such tickets were not likely to “catch up with them” if they were not likely to be driving in Virginia in the future. This is no longer the case.
Increasingly, with the integration of databases among states concerning criminal matters and driving infractions, tickets that are ignored – particularly those such as reckless driving that carry criminal misdemeanor designations – will catch up with drivers. In cases in which court appearances are required, a failure to appear at court can have even more serious consequences. It is much better, therefore, to retain an attorney and seek to contest a ticket than to ignore a ticket completely.
