Cited for a traffic violation in Virginia? - Call Us Today (888) 599-4090

Traffic violations can range from failure to yield to reckless driving and can carry consequences such as a simple fine to possible jail time. No matter the severity of your offense, it is wise to discuss the matter with an attorney rather than simply paying a fine. The Newport News traffic violation defense attorneys at Heath, Old & Verser, P.L.C. have decades of combined experience in a wide range of practice areas.

We understand that the consequences increase depending on the type of offense and your driving record. With this in mind, we will work to get your violation reduced or dismissed altogether.

Let Us Help You Fight Your Speeding Ticket

While speeding tickets are by far the most common type of traffic violation in Virginia, the severity of this violation can change dramatically depending on the circumstances.

Speeding ticket variations include:

  • Reckless driving: When a driver is traveling more than 80 miles per hour, or more than 20 miles over the posted speed limit, that driver can be charged with reckless driving. A conviction for reckless driving can result in up to $2,500 in fines and up to a year in jail.
  • Aggressive driving: A driver can be charged with aggressive driving for following too closely, improper passing, driving on the road shoulders or evading traffic control devices. A conviction for aggressive driving can result in up to $1,000 in fines and up to six months in jail.

Both of these offenses could lead to a loss of driving privileges, points on your license and increased insurance rates. Additionally, we have been called upon regularly to defend out-of-state drivers and professional drivers. Drivers who operate under a commercial driver's license (CDL) face serious consequences that could mean the loss of employment.
