Richmond Traffic Law Attorney

Get an Aggressive Defense for Virginia Traffic Offenses

Driving on the local or interstate roads and highways is a way of life for most people in this country. However, the privilege of driving subjects you to many laws and regulations. Violations of these laws can lead to consequences. Some of those consequences can be significant depending on the violation. Where you have been cited with a minor traffic infraction, you may want to pay the fine and move on. Even this has consequences, however, in terms of your driving record and insurance premiums. In cases of more serious traffic law crimes, however, the consequences can be much more significant. That is why it is important to understand all of the ramifications of any traffic law violation.

If you have been charged with a traffic offense in Virginia, we can help. At Janus & Stone, P.C., we represent clients charged with these violations. Our Richmond traffic law lawyer can answer your questions and advise you on how best to handle the situation. In many cases, you may be facing the potential of a license suspension as well as costly fines. In the most serious cases involving Virginia misdemeanors, you could be facing jail time as well. While you may not think that traffic tickets require legal insight and assistance, the representation of a competent attorney can make a difference in terms of your finances, driving privileges, and more.

Areas of Practice Over a Thousand Cases Handled

Virginia Traffic Violations

Janus & Stone, P.C. provides competent and aggressive legal representation for all traffic violations, including the following:

  • DUI. This complex traffic crime is generally charged as a misdemeanor in a first offense carrying penalties of jail time, hefty fines, license suspension, and other potential consequences.
  • Reckless driving. This is a Class 1 misdemeanor that is punishable by a fine of up to $2,500; however, fines are generally determined by your driving record, speed, and other factors. It will also result in 6 demerit points added to your driving record.
  • Improper driving. Under Virginia law, you may have a reckless driving charge reduced down to improper driving if your “degree of culpability is slight.” This carries a fine of up to $500.
  • Speeding. This will result in fines and demerit points to your record. Speeding 20 mph or more above the limit will result in six points. Speeding 10-19 mph above the limit will result in four points. Speeding one to nine mph above the limit will result in three points.
  • Hit and run. This is charged as a misdemeanor or felony depending on the circumstances. It can result in fines of up to $2,500, license suspension, and jail time.
  • Aggressive driving. Various driving behaviors under Virginia law are considered aggressive driving, including following too closely, failing to yield right of way, acting as a hazard to others, and more. It may be charged as a Class 1 or 2 misdemeanor punishable by fines, a license suspension, jail time, and four demerit points.
  • Driving on a suspended license. This is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500 along with an additional suspension of your license. You will also receive six demerit points and have to pay fees to get your license reinstated.
  • Habitual offender. You may be declared a habitual offender if you receive three major or 12 minor traffic violation convictions within a 10-year period. Driving after being declared a habitual offender can result in a misdemeanor carrying up to 90 days in jail and/or up to $2,500. However, if you drove while under the influence (DUI) or you endangered property or people, you will likely be charged with a felony.

In any traffic offense, even if you are guilty as charged, a defense may be available for your case. In some instances, we may be able to negotiate your charge to a lesser offense or have it dismissed upon completion of driving school. A reduction of your charge may save you points on your driving record. If your license has been suspended, revoked, restricted, or you have been declared a habitual offender, we can help you petition the court to restore driving privileges. In Virginia, license suspensions occur if you accumulate 18 points in 12 months or 24 points in 24 months.
