65 on a 35, no reckless, what's the damage? - June 21, 2012, 04:22 PM

so the Torino wasn't liking the heat and traffic today and started running a little too rich, so I opened it up for a couple of seconds pulling away from a stop light... In Fairfax... Close to the DMV in Franconia... YEah... Talk about not thinking... Anyway the cop was nice enough to understand I wasn't just any idiot doing 70 on a 35 (he wrote 65 on the paper), but I was an idiot with a somewhat plausible reason for doing it, so he gave me a speeding ticket but no reckless driving. Am I correct to assume it's going to cost me $5 dollars per every mile an hour over the limit (read in somewhere over the interwebz) so "only" $150? Seems too good to be true...

Ya, I just paid my 76 in a 55. Was $6/mile over + $51 fee + $13 local fee. Then, if you pay by credit card (online or not) they charge a 4% convenience fee. Cost me like $197 and change.

I was under the impression that 20 over is an automatic reckless, whether they indicate this on the ticker or not, and you have to show up to court. I guess this is not true?

The Code of Virginia has over 20 sections pertaining to reckless driving. It is defined as a Class 1 misdemeanor criminal offense, not a traffic infraction or a speeding ticket. For example, Virginia code explicitly defines the act of speeding 20 mph or more above the posted speed limit (or at any speed greater than 80 mph) as reckless driving.
All drivers convicted of reckless driving in Virginia, including out-of-state and foreign (e.g. Canadian) drivers, will have a permanent criminal record that will be indexed in the NCIC criminal database. The conviction will also be added to a Virginia driving record for 11 years, and six demerit points will be applied.[2]
Commonly applied statutes for reckless driving
46.2-852. Reckless driving; general rule. Irrespective of the maximum speeds permitted by law, any person who drives a vehicle on any highway recklessly or at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person shall be guilty of reckless driving.
46.2-862. Exceeding speed limit. A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who drives a motor vehicle on the highways in the Commonwealth (i) at a speed of twenty miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable maximum speed limit or (ii) in excess of eighty miles per hour regardless of the applicable maximum speed limit.
46.2-868. Reckless driving; penalties.
A. Every person convicted of reckless driving under the provisions of this article shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
B. Every person convicted of reckless driving under the provisions of this article who, when he committed the offense, (i) was driving without a valid operator's license due to a suspension or revocation for a moving violation and, (ii) as the sole and proximate result of his reckless driving, caused the death of another, is guilty of a Class 6 felony.



TLDR; you better consult with an attorney. If the cop was misinformed and gave you bad info, you will end up with a criminal conviction.

Doesn't matter how he writes it or how the court charges you, if it's 20mph+ over or 80mph+ then DMV sees it as reckless and docks you -6 points that sits in your record for a long time.

When I was younger I had blessed my driving record with -23 points by the time I was 18. Insurance was like another (new) car payment.

LOL yeah I have just about every ticket out there I can think of. Is there a way to look online at the DMV's website to see how many points you have?
