Speeding in the Town of Vienna Reduced to Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention
Client was stopped for speeding in the Town of Vienna and issued a speeding ticket for driving 54mph in a 35mph zone. They were a George Mason University Student and were doing very well. However, they had a relatively extensive driving record from past tickets. Client was remorseful and had come to realize they needed to properly address this case due to their current increased insurance premiums.
To prepare for this case the client took two defensive driving courses and performed 30 hours of community service. They also wrote a letter for the Town of Attorney (prosecutor) explaining their remorse, that they have reevaluated their driving habits, and their commitment to be more responsible on the road.
Due to their extensive attention to their case, the Town Attorney agreed to lower the speeding charge to Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention under the Vienna Town Code with a fine. This means that nothing will appear on our client's driving record as a result of this case due to the reduction.
Sometimes we get clients that come to us and need our help but their driving record may seemingly preclude anyone in the courts to caring to give them another chance. But when they thoroughly prepare for their cases the prosecutors, police officers, and Judges see that. A display of remorse and a candid promise of responsibility can be moving to those that can help.
