Virginia speed traps are a legal means of enforcing traffic laws. And if you break those laws you could face criminal charges, and some serious time in jail. This is because in the state of Virginia, certain speeding violations may earn you a reckless driving charge.

Virginia statutes state that if your vehicle exceeds a speed of 80 mph, or if you are caught driving 20 mph over the legal limit, an officer can charge you with reckless driving speeding. And there are speed traps on interstate highways that are meant to catch offenders.

Some of the most notorious speed traps are located near Richmond on interstates I-95, I-85, and I-64
. And with officers monitoring highway traffic 24 hours a day, there are quite a few people being charged with reckless driving/speeding.

A reckless driving conviction can come with serious penalties and fines. These include administrative fees, license suspensions, an increase in insurance rates, and even time in jail. And in Virginia, reckless driving is considered a class 1 misdemeanor, which means that if you are convicted, it will leave you with a permanent criminal record. Many Virginia reckless driving attorneys feel that these penalties are severe.
