Reckless Driving Reduced to Improper Driving

Reckless Driving Reduced to Improper Driving

An attorney for The Weiland Firm, PLC achieved a very good result in a local court recently on a serious charge of Henrico Reckless Driving by Speed. The client was charged with driving 95 MPH or above. Because of this particular court’s policy, the client was facing the likelihood of an active jail sentence, a high fine and license suspension.

As a result of the attorney’s and client’s mitigation efforts in the case our attorney was not only able to avoid a jail sentence and license suspension but was able to get the charge reduced to the traffic offense of Improper Driving. Improper Driving is a minor traffic offense unlike Reckless Driving, which is a Class 1 Misdemeanor criminal offense, and carries the least number of demerit points under the Virginia DMV rules governing moving violations.
