Speeding in Loudoun County Reduced to Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention

September 2023

Client was driving home from the store and was stopped for driving 61mph in a 45mph zone.  They were issued a speeding ticket by the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.  They were young and wanted to avoid any impact on their insurance so they called us at the Letnick Law Firm, PLC.

Client was asked to provide a copy of their driving record which reflected a relatively recent prior speeding ticket.  We know that the Loudoun County General District Court can be very tough on traffic matters so we recommended our client take both a defensive driving course and reckless driving course.  It may sound strange to recommend a reckless driving course but we wanted to show the Court our client meant business.  What's more is the client, on their own, performed 10 hours of community service.  Needless to say the Judge was impressed and reduced the charge in court to Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention under the Loudoun County Code.  Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention is a non-reportable offense so it does not go onto the DMV record.  As a result it does not affect points or insurance.  At this time the Loudoun County Prosecutor's Office do not get involved in infractions, such as speeding, so the case must go directly before a Judge for decision.  Every person has the right to represent themselves in court and we strongly recommend preparing a strong mitigation package for the Judge.  But hiring a traffic lawyer is still a good idea even for infractions since we know what the Court needs in order to give our clients a favorable outcome.
