Reckless Driving Charge Dismissed in Prince William County
Young client was charged with Reckless Driving by Town of Dumfries Police in Prince William County. Client was clocked for driving 60 mph in a 35mph zone. Since the speed alleged is 20mph or more above the speed limit, it is considered reckless driving under Virginia Code § 46.2-862. Client had a clean driving record and was in college. Client explained to the officer that they were driving to a friend's house to study. We appeared in the Prince William County General District Court and argued to the Judge for our client's reckless driving charge to be dismissed following completion of traffic school to which the Judge agreed. Our client was young, in college, polite with the officer, and traffic was unaffected. Client completed all requirements and their charge was dismissed. Accordingly, they avoided a misdemeanor conviction.
