DUI Offenses Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, & Stafford, VA

 
 
Driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage (DUI), or drunk driving, is a serious offense in Virginia. The defense of DUI cases may be challenging and should be handled by highly experienced drunk driving defense lawyers. At the Law Office of Michael J. George, we have the knowledge and experience required to fight your DUI case.
That doesn't mean that police can violate your civil rights. A police officer must have reasonable suspicion to pull you over on a traffic stop. Reasonable suspicion may consist of weaving in and out of traffic, accelerating or decelerating rapidly, braking erratically, swerving or following too closely. Law enforcement looks for these particular signs when monitoring the roadways. Speeding is not a DUI indicator. If the police officer lacked reasonable suspicion to pull you over, the DUI charges may be dropped.

Reckless Driving

Virginia Reckless Driving laws are some of the most severe traffic laws in the country. The Virginia legislature set up its Reckless Driving statutes to criminalize the act of speeding if a person exceeds 20 miles per hour faster than the posted speed limit or over 80 miles per hour

Reckless driving is not just a speeding ticket. It is a criminal offense, specifically a class 1 misdemeanor in the same criminal classification as a DUI/DWI charge. A conviction or guilty plea can impact insurance premiums, your job, security clearances, and other sensitive matters affecting government contractors, military and law enforcement personnel, and a wide variety of professions.
 
A Reckless Driving conviction remains on your Virginia driving record for 11 years and because it is a misdemeanor it can remain on your permanent criminal record for the remainder of your life. In addition, if you are convicted, this is punishable by up to 12 months in jail, up to a $2,500 fine, and a possible loss of your driving privileges for up to six months.
