Two Interstate highways – I-77 and I-81 intersect in Wythe County, Virginia. Thus, Wythe County is fertile ground for the issuance of speeding tickets by the Virginia State Police. Most of those tickets are for speeding 81 mph and over. Many of the out-of-state drivers who have just received such a ticket are unaware that they have just been charged with reckless driving! Reckless driving is a criminal misdemeanor in Virginia. The potential penalties are severe. $2500 fine, 6 months’ loss of license, 6 points on the driving record, and even jail!
