Speeding in Fairfax City Reduced to Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention

October 2023

Client was stopped for driving 40mph in a 25mph zone by a Fairfax City Police Officer.  They received a speeding ticket and were sent on their way.  Client was simply driving to lacrosse practice at 7am and is a student at George Mason University.

Client had a clean driving record and at our direction took a defensive driving course.  The police officer indicated that client was polite and cooperative and had no issue with a reduction of the charge.  Our client was young and was otherwise doing very well in school so the City Prosecutor agreed to lower the charge to Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention under the Fairfax City Code.  This amendment is not reportable to the DMV so it does not go onto the driving record.  Therefore it does not affect DMV points or insurance (certainly important for a young driver). 

The Fairfax City General District Court is a separate courthouse from the Fairfax County General District Court.  Fairfax County General District Court Judges appear and handle cases in the City Courthouse for those incidents that occur within the confines of Fairfax City.  We regularly handle traffic cases in the Fairfax City Courthouse and are always happy to help.

Practice area(s): Speeding / Traffic Ticket
