Staunton VA Suspended Driver’s License Case DISMISSED
Our Staunton VA traffic lawyers defended a client who was accused of driving on a suspended driver’s license in violation of Va. Code 46.2-301 – a criminal misdemeanor with harsh penalties. Our client had no idea that her driving privileges were suspended. We prepared and argued the case in such a manner that the client did not have to return for trial. Our winning argument was the Commonwealth was unable to sufficiently prove the “notice” element. The Court dismissed the case.
Fail to Move Over/Yield Emergency Vehicle DISMISSED
Our traffic lawyers represented a client who was charged with failing to yield to a stationary emergency vehicle, more popularly known as the “Move Over Law” in violation of Va. Code 46.2-861.1 for simply failing to make a lane change while travelling on the Interstate 81. Many folks who drive in Virginia have no idea that such a law exists, but that is not a defense. The law does not require a lane change if the driver exercises caution. We convinced the Judge to enter an order that protected our client.
