Reckless Driving Penalties in Stafford

When you’re faced with a reckless driving charge in Stafford County, Virginia, you may be wondering what the penalties are that you’re facing. Unfortunately, the information that you find online isn’t very helpful a lot of times. The fact of the matter is that you’ll find lots of attorneys who are trying to scare you into hiring them by telling you may be going to jail.

Don’t listen to them.

In some cases, reckless driving does carry a real risk of jail time. Keep in mind jail time is the maximum punishment. For Stafford County, those cases are typically when the speed is extreme. If you’re charged with reckless driving, you should definitely call me to determine where your case fits on the jail spectrum.

Some attorneys will harp on the maximum fine allowed by the statute, which is $2,500, and the possibility of your license being suspended for six months. Again, those are just the maximums. The best way to determine whether or not license suspension is a threat is to call me so we can review your case together.

What is possible for reckless driving in Stafford County?

In Stafford, for a reckless driving case, we do have some great options. The first thing that I do in every case is check over the officer’s evidence to see if his equipment was working properly and make sure he can prove that the equipment was checked for accuracy before and after his shift. If he can’t prove that his equipment was working properly and he doesn’t have the proper calibration certificate, we have a great argument.

In all honesty, most of the time, that evidence is in order, so the case becomes more of a negotiation with the officer and with the judge. Focusing on the local courts means that I know the officers and judges, and I can help guide my clients to the best possible outcome.

How do you know where your case fits on a spectrum?

One of the most important things for a reckless driving case is to talk with me. I am a local, experienced, Stafford reckless driving lawyer to know where your case is going to fit. Once I learn about the details that are specific to your case, I can give you a better idea of where case lands on the spectrum.

I can tell you what defenses you have and which ones will not work. I am a regular in Stafford County handling these cases, and I would be honored by the chance to talk with you. In the meantime, you can grab a free copy of my book “Fight Your Reckless Driving Ticket”.

Stafford Reckless Driving – What NOT to Say

Here is the WORST defense to a reckless driving charge that I’ve ever seen at the Stafford traffic court:

“I thought the speed limit was 70, and I had my speed control set on 83.”

WRONG. Don’t say it. Please!

This particular defendant was charged with going 90 mph in a 65 mph zone. In her mind, she was arguing that she wasn’t guilty of the offense as charged. But she flat out confessed to reckless driving by speed.

In Virginia, reckless driving by speed is ANY speed over 80 mph. Period. And don’t think that the judge didn’t notice. He certainly did. He pointed out that she had just admitted to reckless driving by speed.

If this lady had hired me, I definitely wouldn’t have used that “defense.” Surely if she had hired ANY attorney, the defense would’ve been more sound than admitting to the crime.

A Few Testimonials from my Stafford County Clients:

Andrew Flusche was my lawyer in the stafford county, I was pulled over by police for reckless driving and impounded me with 96 miles/ hour. In virginia this is a severe offense and getting away with it without the license getting suspended seemed very difficult. Andrew was helpful in an amazing way, especially with his immediate response to my emails. Seems like he was always there to answer back.

His advice helped I gathered all the paperwork he suggested and met him in the court. I was charged with hefty fine but he saved my license. This was a victory in itself. The Plus points that I would accord to Andrew would be his response times, when your lawyer responds back on the same day you feel that you are in safe hands….

As my wife and I were coming through Stafford, Va on a Sunday afternoon we were surprised by being pulled for driving twenty miles over the speed limit. We were more astonished to learn that in the Common Wealth of Virginia that was considered reckless driving . Having no knowledge of Virginia laws and living in Florida it became necessary to find attorney to handle my case. I believe Andrew was a God send. I found him to be professional, effective and relational. I am pleased to say that Andrew got the charges dismissed after I complete the driving school.

I got a Reckless Driving ticket coming home from DC. After doing the research and knowing what was on the line (HUGE fine and 6 points on my license), I looked online for Attorneys in the Stafford area and hired Andrew. He took the reins from there, represented me at court so I wouldn’t have to drive all the way back up there and got it reduced to Improper Driving. (Only 3 points and a much smaller fine!!) He was super professional and always got responded to my emails promptly! I will recommend him to any friends that find themselves in the same situation!!
