Reckless Driving Charge Reduced to Speeding in Loudoun County
Client was charged with Reckless Driving in Loudoun County at 80 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone on Route 7. This was his first reckless driving charge. Client was simply heading home and going with the flow of traffic. When stopped he was polite with the officer and advised he did not realize his speed. He only had one prior speeding ticket on his driving record. He took a driver improvement course and we appeared for his court date on his behalf. This case occurred during the coronavirus pandemic so we advised our client to simply stay at work while we handled his case in court. Having had many cases with the State Trooper we negotiated a plea deal with the prosecutor to reduce the charge to a speeding infraction at 64/55 (9-over) under Virginia Code §46.2-870 with a fine. As a result, the client avoided a misdemeanor conviction for reckless driving.
