Our Colonial Heights traffic attorneys represented a client from Maryland who was pulled over by a Virginia State Trooper for speeding. The trooper’s L.I.D.A.R. evidence was that our client was traveling 77 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. In Virginia, evidence of speeding 20 miles or more above the posted speed limit is a violation of the misdemeanor reckless driving law pursuant to Va. Code 46.2-862. Our client could not afford a misdemeanor reckless driving conviction for many reasons. We analyzed our client’s case and presented various arguments to protect her, which we did. We convinced the Court to dismiss the case.
Our Colonial Heights VA traffic lawyers represented a client from Midlothian VA who was pulled over by the Colonial Heights police for misdemeanor reckless driving speeding. The Virginia DMV database also showed our client’s driving privilege as suspended. This led to two misdemeanor allegations being issued: 1) Reckless Driving, and 2) Driving on a Suspended License. After reviewing our clients case we were able to develop arguments that protected her. We convinced the Court to dismiss the reckless driving case upon completion of a driver improvement program and to reduce the suspended license allegation to a lesser offense with a small fine only being imposed. If not handled properly, our client could have served a jail sentence and walked away with a significant loss of driving penalty.
