Reckless Driving Charge Reduced to Fail to Obey a Highway Sign in Loudoun County
Client was charged with reckless driving for going 79 miles per hour in a 55 mile per zone in Loudoun County. Client was stopped by a State Trooper and advised the trooper that they were simply trying to get home from work because they were going out of town the next morning. Client had a clean driving record. We appeared for court on our client's behalf (client was not present for court) and negotiated a reduction of the charge with the prosecutor citing the client's clean record and cooperation with the state trooper during the traffic stop. (Client had spent a few minutes speaking to the trooper and thanked him for his service). The charge was reduced to failure to obey a highway sign under Virginia Code § 46.2-830 with a fine. The client avoided a misdemeanor conviction and ended up with a low-level highway sign infraction.
