Christiansburg VA Reckless Driving DISMISSED

Christiansburg VA Reckless Driving DISMISSED

Christiansburg VA Reckless Driving DISMISSED

Our reckless driving attorneys represented a client charged with reckless driving for driving too fast. In this case, we developed defenses to the police RADAR device used to calculate speed. A plea of not guilty was entered. We were able to effectively cross examine the state trooper who operated the RADAR in this case and made the reckless driving allegation. We exposed the fact that the RADAR used in this particular case was not tested for accuracy with properly calibrated tuning forks, which is required by Va. Code 46.2-882. The Judge granted our motion to dismiss the case.

Approximately 29 colleges and universities are located along the I-81 corridor. At least half of all Virginia college students and their families use I-81.

Speeding and Reckless Driving Traffic Defense Lawyer Review

While returning to NJ from SC, my wife was cited for doing 81 in a 70 and while we actually going nowhere near 81 mph. we were not overly confident in our ability to fight the charge from such a long distance. We contacted Riley & Wells provided the details and they were able to help us lower the charge to a non moving violation, which was a huge help. We had several VA plates in front of us moving faster and several behind and still the officer pulled us out of the group (NJ plates). Something needs to be done about the dishonest way that the State of VA rakes in 100+ million a year in fines on the backs of out of state motorists. Thanks to Riley & Wells at least we have a fighting chance!
