Reckless Driving in Culpeper
If you’re facing a Culpeper reckless driving ticket, you need to talk with an experienced traffic defense lawyer who can help you handle the case. You have options.
Hello. My name is Andrew Flusche. I’m a Virginia traffic and misdemeanor attorney. If you’re facing a reckless driving charge in Culpeper County, Virginia, you should definitely talk with an experienced traffic attorney who can help you navigate the case. Even though it may seem straightforward if the officer got you on radar or laser, it may seem like it’s a done deal like he can prove that he got you at the right speed and you’re going to be found guilty of reckless driving, but unfortunately good for us that’s not the case. There are some defenses we can mount sometimes to the radar or laser or pace for the officer. Definitely in every case I check to see if the officer has the proper certificates to prove that his equipment is calibrated and working properly. And even if he can prove his case we can still try to get the judge to give us a better outcome than reckless driving.
That’s going to be based on the factors such as your driving record, your demeanor on the side of the road, was there anything else unusual about your case, was it purely for speed or were you weaving in and out of traffic, all sorts of things will go into that determination by the judge. But in some cases we can prevail and get the case reduced to a lesser offense or even dismissed depending on all the facts and circumstances of your case.
If you have a charge pending in Culpeper it really makes sense to talk with an attorney who can help you determine what defenses might be possible and what outcomes may happen in court and of course having somebody there at your side on the day of trial really makes a difference just to calm the nerves and help have somebody who’s in your corner. If you want to talk about your Culpeper case just give me a call.
