State traffic laws in Virginia are unforgiving. Virginia’s traffic code identifies 14 different driving violations that fall under reckless driving, one of which is speeding 20 mph over the limit. Countless out-of-state drivers, commercial truck drivers and vacationers get ticketed on Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel — a 23-mile speed trap that offers no roadside landmarks or reference points that might indicate how fast your vehicle is traveling.
In addition to the tunnel, reckless driving charges are frequently issued along I-64, I-664, I-264, Highway 58 and Highway 13. If drunk driving charges were brought against you while you were passing through the state, either on vacation or assignment, you should consider hiring a Virginia defense lawyer. It’s advantageous to choose a lawyer who is familiar with the jurisdiction where your case will be tried.
We know the stakes are high. We defend commercial truck drivers who can’t afford to lose their commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs), military service members who risk the loss of security clearances if convicted, and college students who hope to complete their degrees and pursue careers without hindrance. No matter your situation, we’ll work with you to protect your driver’s license and status, combat alleged traffic offenses and keep unwanted criminal convictions off your permanent record.
