In the State of Virginia, reckless driving is a moving violation and a crime that is taken very seriously by the DMV and law enforcement officials. In addition to a traffic ticket for reckless driving, violators will be charged with a Class One Misdemeanor as well. The punishments for such a crime include:
- Up to a $2,500 fine
- Up to a year in jail
- Loss of your license for up to six months
Additionally, you could be arrested on the spot and have your car impounded. Simply put, being charged with reckless driving is costly in many ways and it’s something you want to avoid when at all possible.
