What Constitutes Reckless Driving in Virginia?

Every year, over twenty million drivers receive citations from the police, often in the form of a reckless driving charge. However, many people remain unaware of the severity of a reckless driving charge. In Virginia, reckless driving is considered a criminal offense, setting it apart from standard moving violations or driving infractions.

Depending on the specific circumstances of a matter, a conviction can result in:

  • A permanent misdemeanor or felony criminal charge on your record;
  • Fines of up to $2,500;
  • License suspension for up to six months; and
  • Possible jail time of up to 12 months.

Additionally, an individual’s driving record may be negatively affected for up to eleven years. For example, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) documents various offenses on an individual’s DMV record for a specified number of years (depending on the offense) following a conviction or guilty plea:

  • Speeding over 85 mph: 11 years
  • Driving 20 mph over the limit: 11 years
  • Passing a school bus: 11 years
  • Passing an emergency vehicle: 11 years
  • Passing at a railroad crossing: 11 years
  • Racing: 11 years
  • Driving too fast for weather or road conditions: 11 years
  • Driving two vehicles abreast: 11 years
  • Driving with an obstructed view: 11 years

It is important to note that this list is not all-inclusive, and a variety of other charges could also have long-lasting implications on your driving record.

I started receiving services through this law firm in 2017 for my workers compensation case. Over the years, this firm has been attentive, kind, patient and understanding to my needs. My calls were returned promptly, if the associate was unavailable at that time and I have had ample opportunity to speak with Mr Hurt directly concerning my case. With Mary Wilson, Bart Conway, Mr Hurt and others behind the scene, my case has progressed smoothly. I am very pleased with the services and attention I received at this firm and would recommend Mr Hurt, Mary and Bart for your needs.
