Reckless Driving Charge Reduced to Fail to Obey a Highway Sign in Loudoun County

January 2021

Client was driving to pick up their son for soccer practice on Route 28 when cited for reckless driving in Loudoun County.  Client was charged with driving 83 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone.  Since the speed alleged is 20mph or more over the speed limit it is considered reckless driving pursuant to Virginia Code § 46.2-862.  The client was polite with the trooper and explained they were simply trying to pick up their son to take him to soccer practice.  Client had a clean driving record.  We negotiated a reduction of the reckless driving charge to failure to obey a highway sign under Virginia Code § 46.2-830 with a fine.  The client avoided a misdemeanor conviction and, instead, was convicted of a low-level traffic infraction.  After we appeared before the Judge, we took our client to the Loudoun County General District Court clerk's office where he paid the fine for the amended highway sign infraction.  We shook hands and our client left the courthouse happy and has now put this case behind them.  We are happy for our client.
