If you have received a reckless driving ticket in Virginia you are far from alone. Because of the state's over-active pursuit of speeding motorists and reckless drivers, you are in very good company. Not only are Virginia traffic laws incredibly strict and the penalties serious, speed traps are more than common on Virginia's roads.

Speed Traps, Speed Traps, and More Speed Traps

If you are a resident of Virginia, you are probably already aware of the numerous speed traps throughout the state. However, the placement of many 24-hour speed traps on major interstates would suggest that Virginia residents are not the only target.

Out-of-state motorists receiving a reckless driving ticket may not realize they are receiving a criminal charge under Virginia's weighted traffic laws. A criminal charge stays on your record in any state, meaning that ticket could follow the out-of-state motorist home and into the rest of his or her foreseeable future.  

This is why it is important, should you receive a reckless driving ticket in Virginia, to contact an experienced Virginia reckless driving attorney, regardless of whether or not you are a resident of Virginia. You will need the assistance of a professional with experience in Virginia's traffic laws and procedures.  

When the punishment does not fit the crime, as is typically the case under Virginia's traffic laws, an experienced attorney may be needed.
