If you have received a reckless driving ticket in Virginia, you may have been prompted by the court to just pay the ticket and worry no longer. This is a bad idea for a number of reasons, primarily because paying your reckless driving ticket is equivalent to pleading guilty. It would be a much better idea to first consult a Virginia reckless driving attorney and learn how to fight your reckless driving charges.
The court will not always tell you that the act of paying your ticket is equivalent to a guilty plea to a criminal charge, but this does not make it any less true. However convenient mailing a check to court may be, it is not worth the serious repercussions such as:
- A criminal conviction on your record;
- Increased insurance records; and
- Possible job loss or refusal because of a criminal record.
"Just paying" the ticket may sound convenient for you, but it is really only convenient for the court.
