Reckless Driving Charge Reduced to Fail to Obey a Highway Sign While Resting in Loudoun County
Client was charged with Reckless Driving in Loudoun County at 78 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone on Route 28. Client is a teacher who was spending the day with his family and had planned on going out west for some quality time with them. Client had a clean driving record. After speaking with the State Trooper the prosecutor agreed to our proposal for a no-point offense given this was our client's first ticket and served our community by teaching our children. The reckless driving charge was reduced to fail to obey a highway sign while resting under Virginia Code §46.2-830.1 which carries no points on the driving record and is an infraction. Accordingly, the client avoided a misdemeanor conviction for reckless driving and, instead, received an infraction for a no-point offense. Because this case occurred during the coronavirus pandemic we appeared on our client's behalf for his case.
