Speeding Tickets in Wise County
Interstate 23 is one of the main highways through Wise County, entering on the north from Kentucky, then running south to Norton, and then curving in a south-westernly direction through East Stone Gap to the southwestern corner of the county. As this highway cuts through a pristine part of the state, it’s easy for drivers to pay more attention to the views than to their speed. As a result, this highway, and other state routes and roads through Wise County, make for ideal speed traps.
About Our Firm and How We Help Clients
We represent clients in speeding ticket, reckless driving, and other charges throughout Southwest Virginia. As part of our practice, we regularly interact with the same judges, prosecutors, and police officers.
We know the prosecutors well, and they know that we will not hesitate to take the cases of our clients to court if a successful agreement is not reached. As we appear before the same judges frequently, we also know the policies and circumstances that often will result in ticket dismissal.
Seeking the Best Outcome for You
We will start by learning the facts of your case. After discussing the potential options for defending your ticket, we will then speak with the prosecutor and explain why we believe that your ticket should be dismissed, or why other reduced charges are appropriate.
In our experience, prosecutors generally do not want to take the time and expend the resources (including a police officer’s time) to take most speeding ticket cases to trial, as they will have more serious crimes to prosecute. If an agreement for dismissal or a lesser charge is agreed upon by the prosecution (with your approval), the agreement is then submitted to the court for approval.
While we cannot make any promises to any clients, we do have a long record of being able to successfully get speeding tickets dismissed or much better outcomes for our clients than if a ticket was simply paid, particularly for clients who have good driving records.
What If I Was Going 20 Miles or More Over the Posted Speed? You Should Understand that Your Charge Will be for Reckless Driving
If you are charged with going 20 miles or more over the posted speed, this constitutes reckless driving change in Virginia, which is more serious than simply speeding.
In Virginia, a reckless driving charge is considered a criminal misdemeanor, with potential penalties of a $2500 fine, the loss of a license for 6 months, 6 points added to a driving record, and possibly jail. A conviction or guilty plea can also raise a person’s insurance premiums, and cause difficulty in the event of subsequent tickets, which can bring a person closer to a license suspension.
Because of the increased seriousness of the charge, we believe that those charged with reckless driving should always seek legal counsel.
