Reckless Driving Charge in the Town of Vienna reduced to No Point Offense
Client was cited for speeding at 53mph in a 30mph zone in the Town of Vienna on Maple Ave. located in Fairfax County. The client was polite and cooperative so the Town of Vienna police officer did not cite for reckless driving but for a speeding ticket only. However, the client wanted to avoid DMV points and insurance rate increases so we handled the case. Client was young, was from California and had a good driving record, and was here on a fellowship working with children. The client took a driver improvement course as instructed and we negotiated with the Town Attorney to have the charge reduced to Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention under the Vienna Town Code with a fine. The amended charge is a Town Code so it carries no DMV points, does not appear on the driving record, and will not affect insurance rates.
