Warning: Reckless Driving in Chesapeake Virginia Is Not a Simple Payable Traffic Infraction
Have you been charged with Reckless Driving in Chesapeake Virginia by a local Officer or a State Trooper? Although there are over 17 different Reckless Driving Charges, almost all violations are written under four Virginia section codes. 46.2-862 involving speed of 19 above the speed limit or anything above 80 miles an hour; 46.2-859 passing a stopped school bus; 46.2-852 (General) and 46.2-853 (failure to maintain proper control of a vehicle) which is often given in connection to an accident or for other driving behavior, such as spinning tires.
All Reckless Driving Charges are classified as Class 1 Criminal Misdemeanor
Don’t be fooled. Just because the officer or trooper gave you a summons and let you on your way, doesn’t mean that it is no more than just a glorified traffic infraction that can be prepaid. In fact, normally at speeds of 90 and above, law enforcement in Chesapeake are known to arrest drivers on the spot instead of issuing them a summons.
Many Out of State drivers and local residents alike are shocked when they find out that a conviction can result in possibility of jail time, suspension of license, large fines and a permanent criminal conviction that will never go away if they are convicted of Reckless Driving in Chesapeake VA.
