Yeargan Law Releases New Web Resources on Reckless Driving in VA

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - United States - Feb 09, 2016 - Today the Law Office of Wilfred Ward Yeargan announced the release of several new resources relevant to being charged with reckless driving in Virginia. These resources are designed to inform drivers of the risks associated with reckless driving, the reasons they could be charged with reckless driving, and the possible defenses they may have in a court of law should they face a reckless driving charge.

In these newly published resources the Fairfax traffic defense lawyer at The Law Office of Wilfred Ward Yeargan advise that reckless driving is a serious crime in Virginia, and can be treated as either a Class 1 misdemeanor, or a Class 6 felony, depending on the nature of the actions leading up to the charge. In Virginia reckless driving is classified as willfully dangerous driving behavior, or neglectful driving behavior, that puts the lives, limbs, or property of other individuals at risk. Reckless driving can be exhibited in a number of different actions, including driving over 80 mph, or 20 mph over the speed limit.

In addition to traveling at excessive speeds, actions included under the Commonwealth of Virginia’s reckless driving statutes include racing, illegally passing a bus or emergency vehicle, or driving a vehicle that is unsafe for travel, such as one with faulty breaks. Penalties for reckless driving in Virginia can be extremely severe, and can include fines of up to $2,500, 6 demerit points added to your driving record, and even jail time in the most severe cases.

While the penalties associated with a reckless driving conviction can be severe, there are a number of possible defenses a traffic attorney can pursue to have the charges reduced or possibly dropped. The Fairfax traffic lawyers at The Law Office of Wilfred Ward Yeargan advise that a qualified traffic attorney help anyone charged with reckless driving in Virginia through the legal process.
