Reckless Driving in Fredericksburg Penalties

If you’re facing a reckless driving in Fredericksburg ticket, you need to know what penalties you’re looking at. The maximum punishment for reckless driving can range up to one year in jail, a $2,500.00 fine and/or license suspension up to six months. In the Fredericksburg area your punishment depends on several different factors. Each case is unique and has different circumstances.

Some judges are more reasonable than others. Since I practice in the same courts on a regular basis, I have gotten to know which judges are more lenient, who likes driving school, and who likes my clients to appear in court. This is another reason why you should hire a local, experienced attorney who regularly practices in the local courts; even in a single county, different judges could arrive at drastically different outcomes. Your driving record also plays a big part in your reckless driving case outcome, as does if you are able to attend driving school or have in the past.

The big question that a lot of people have is whether or not they’re facing jail for a reckless driving in Fredericksburg ticket. Typically the rule of thumb for Fredericksburg is that if you’re going 30 mph over the limit, then jail is a real threat for your case.

Due to the varied nature of reckless driving cases, it’s impossible to give a detailed website summary of what might happen in your unique case. The most important thing you can do is to talk with me to find out what may be possible in your case based on the specific facts of your case, your prior driving record, and the overall situation.
