Our Roanoke VA reckless driving attorneys defended a client who was driving fast and was accused of reckless driving for excessive speed.

We were able to effectively cross examine the deputy sheriff who operated the RADAR and made the reckless driving allegation. We were able to prove 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 Court granted our motion to dismiss the case.
