Representation Can Help After A Speeding Ticket

I can represent you if you have been issued a speeding ticket or different traffic violation in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Traffic violations can have serious penalties, especially depending on your specific violation. I will review your citation and see what options are available to reduce the penalties on your driving privileges.

In some cases, you can face additional criminal charges that stem from speeding. Driving 20 mph over the posted speed limit can turn into a reckless driving charge in Virginia, which is a misdemeanor criminal charge.

Penalties For Traffic Tickets

Traffic violations can result in several penalties, including having the conviction and demerit points on your driving record, increased insurance rates, required completion of a driver improvement clinic and possible license suspension or revocation.

Traffic tickets can go on your record and increase the risk of losing your driving privileges in the future. The demerit points for speeding and reckless driving violations are listed below:

  • Speeding 1-9 mph over the posted speed limit = 3-point violation
  • Speeding 10-19 mph over the posted speed limit = 4-point violation
  • Reckless driving — speeding 20 mph or more over the posted speed limit = 6-point violation
  • Reckless driving — speeding in excess of 80 mph = 6-point violation

Working with a skilled attorney can lead to a better speeding ticket defense. I know what options may be available in your specific situation and will work hard to reduce the penalties associated with your violation.
