In Virginia, speeding may be charged as either reckless or non-reckless driving. A reckless driving conviction will remain on your record for 11 years, while a non-reckless conviction will remain on your record for five years. This distinction can be important. If you choose to merely pay your fine, you will be admitting guilt which is reflected on your record. Subsequent tickets will make the judge and prosecution be less lenient in any future charges you may face. That is why getting legal help from the Fairfax County reckless driving defense attorneys at MacDowell & Associates is so important.
A conviction for driving on a suspended or revoked license will result in serious mandatory penalties. That is why it is important to have experienced legal counsel in your corner. At the law firm of MacDowell & Associates, our Fairfax suspended license defense attorneys know how to provide effective defenses against these types of charges.
Traffic tickets, drunk driving convictions, or any other type of moving violation can all add points to your driving record and may eventually result in a driver’s license suspension. Various traffic offense convictions will result in an assignment of -6, -4, or -3 points to your driving record. Insurance companies may use this information to determine how high your insurance rates will be, and the accumulation of too many points can cause you to lose your license altogether. At the law firm of MacDowell & Associates, our Virginia DMV points attorneys can help you avoid license suspension through a positive result in court.
