Prince William County Reckless Driving Accident Reduced to Improper Driving

August 2020

Client was involved in an accident after attending a work event in Prince William County.  Client rear-ended a vehicle that had stopped abruptly at a yellow light before it turned red.  There was heavy damage to the client's vehicle who was also transported to the hospital.  Unfortunately, due the damage and injuries, the Prince William County Police Officer charged the client with reckless driving under Virginia Code § 46.2-852.  Client had some prior violations on his driving record but was employee of the year at his job and we argued in the Prince William County General District Court that he was not driving recklessly but the vehicle in front had unexpectedly stopped at a yellow light.  There was no evidence the client was speeding or not otherwise paying attention.  The client took a driver improvement course as instructed and the charge was reduced to improper driving under Virginia Code § 46.2-869 which is a traffic infraction.  The insurance companies had already taken care of the damages.  As a result, the client avoided a misdemeanor conviction for reckless driving and walked away with a minor traffic infraction.
