Traffic

The Commonwealth of Virginia takes traffic tickets very seriously. Some traffic offenses like reckless driving are classified as Class 1 misdemeanors. That means that, in addition to license suspension, a driver can be fined up to $2,500, and sentenced for up to one year in jail.

Automobile insurance companies regularly check license records to determine rates. A serious traffic infraction, such as reckless driving or driving under the influence, can and usually does result in significant increase in insurance costs.

Most states have entered into an agreement called the Interstate Driver's License Compact. This agreement enables the states to share certain driving conviction information, so that a serious driving conviction in one state will be considered by the home state of the driver. Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, New Jersey, and New York are just a few of the states that are part of the compact.

Having good, experienced legal representation for your traffic violation can help reduce the charge, penalty, or in some cases even eliminate the conviction. Contact our office for further information regarding your charge, whether we can help, and rate information.
