Petersburg VA Speeding Ticket

The speed limit in Petersburg is closely monitored by the Virginia State Troopers and the Petersburg Police. Interstate 95 is a popular place for law enforcement to patrol because the speed limit drops down to 55 miles per hour. A Petersburg VA Speeding Ticket is probably the most common type of traffic violation in Petersburg Virginia, but note – A SPEEDING TICKET IS NOT A NECESSARILY A CONVICTION. An experienced Petersburg VA Speeding Ticket Lawyer can assist you with your case and in many instances have the allegation either dismissed or reduced to a category that will protect your best interests. A conviction for a speeding offense can negatively affect you in many ways as follows:

  • Excessive fines and court costs
  • Increased automobile insurance premiums
  • Assessment of DMV demerit points (3, 4 or 6 depending on the speed)
  • Possible loss of driving privileges depending on speed and prior convictions
