Were You Charged With Reckless Driving?
Often, law enforcement officers will attempt to charge a driver with reckless driving when it did not happen. It is not uncommon for an accident or a DUI charge to carry an additional charge of reckless driving. Contact our firm to have a consultation with an experienced attorney who can properly advise you and fight to protect your rights.
In Virginia, reckless driving is legally defined in two ways:
- Driving over 80 mph
- Driving more than 20 mph over the posted speed limit
