Looks like this guy took the brunt of the new law from the guy who allegedly was clocked at 208mph in Minn.

What a sissy ass law. Anyone driving in excess of 100mph immediately loses their license for only 6 months?

Oh nos! Look out! You can lose your license for 6 mos in VA just for breaking 80.

What a jackass for running. Especially in such a light sentencing place.

I dont believe you will lose your license in VA for breaking 80 (80+). But it is a reckless driving ticket.

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 where the applicable speed limit is thirty miles per hour or less, (ii) at a speed of sixty miles per hour or more where the applicable maximum speed limit is thirty-five miles per hour, (iii) at a speed of twenty miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable maximum speed limits where the applicable maximum speed limit is forty miles per hour or more, or (iv) in excess of eighty miles per hour regardless of the applicable maximum speed limit.

I believe in MD we get a whole 5mph break, theirs is 85; however I could be wrong, I dont have the Code of MD.

Happened to my best friend. Lost it for 6 months a few years back for 87 in a 55 (back when reckless was 20 over and not simply breaking 80mph).

then his lawyer sucked and he got a shitty judge. What happened to your bud isn't a mandatory sentence. If that were the case, we have a certain Thursday night drinking buddy that would just be getting his license back.

All I know is my experience. I've been pulled over for 97 in a 55 in VA and not written for reckless, but, IF i remember the ticket correctly, it was for over 80 (can't swear to it, though)...

As far as MD goes, I've been pulled for 110 in a 65 and not charged with reckless. It was a pre-payable 500 and some odd dollar ticket. Not reckless, but prety damn pricey...

I think what it boils down to is officer's discretion... Although after asking the cop a few questions, I know that in MD, the ONLY way you get hauled off to jail is if you're drunk, OR you try to run. That's it...

Judge was a complete bitch. Laughed at him, made a joke about having to get a ride to his senior prom, and then said it was probably for the best because he would have probaby gotten busted for drinking and driving after his prom.

All of this because he wasn't paying attention to the long grade he coasted down on I81 headed towards Blacksburg. Cop wouldn't knock it down to 84 either so he had to show up in court, 4 hours from his home, instead of just paying off the ticket.

I didn't mean to imply getting reckless meant mandatory 6 months w/o a license, just that it was possible. And that losing your license only for 6 months when doing triple digit speeds is laughable. As far as I'm concerned jail time should be involved. 3 days mandatory would be enough to discourage most people.
