Failure to Move Over for a Stationary Vehicle is a Traffic Violation
Virginia law requires the driver of any motor vehicle to “move over” when passing a stationary vehicle under certain traffic conditions. A violation of this law can be considered reckless driving, which is a criminal misdemeanor in some cases. If you have been accused of violating this law then you need to consult an attorney before appearing in the Augusta General District Court.
Augusta County Reckless Driving REDUCED to No Points
Our traffic lawyers represented a client licensed to drive in Maryland who was accused of criminal misdemeanor reckless driving for driving too fast on the interstate. A criminal conviction would have likely destroyed our client’s career. We were successful with being able to convince the Court to find our client NOT GUILTY.
