Should I Hire a Lawyer to Fight My Reckless Driving Speeding Ticket? (Part B)

Fighting your license suspension

If your driver's license is in jeopardy due to a reckless driving/speeding charge, you can appeal for your license at an administrative hearing. You can not, however, appeal to a jury, as a suspension/revocation hearing is an administrative proceeding, which differs from a judicial proceeding. But you can cross-examine witnesses, and appeal with the help of a Virginia reckless driving attorney.

Protecting your criminal record

One of the most frustrating consequences of a reckless driving/speeding conviction is the permanent criminal record. As a class 1 misdemeanor, a simple act of exceeding the speed limit will be treated as a criminal offense. And with no provision under Virginia law for the expungement of this charge, your record will be scarred permanently. Every time you apply for a job your conviction may become an issue.

What can a Virginia reckless driving attorney do?

Fortunately, there are rights provided by the U.S. Constitution which protect us from unfair treatment. Police officers must follow certain procedures when making an arrest. If any of these procedures were violated, then you may be able to convince a judge to dismiss your criminal charge. You may also challenge the efficiency of the equipment that was used to gauge your speed.

By hiring a Virginia reckless driving attorney, you can get the help of someone who is skilled in traffic law. By investigating your case, appealing your license suspension, and representing you in court, a Virginia reckless driving attorney can do everything necessary to help beat your speeding charge.
