Protecting Your Rights
What Makes Haymarket Reckless Driving Cases Unique?
Haymarket is an independent town in Prince William County. The Haymarket traffic court is held inside the Prince William County courthouse and reckless driving cases are heard by Prince William County judges. The Haymarket police force is separate and the Haymarket prosecutor is a local defense attorney who is hired by Haymarket to prosecute a few days a week.
The Haymarket police write a lot of reckless driving tickets on the I-66. The Haymarket police department does not always calibrate their LiDAR and Radar equipment the same way as the state police and some other local police departments. Local judges have different opinions of what is acceptable as a calibration so knowledge of local customs and judges is essential for fighting Haymarket reckless driving by speed cases.
Penalties for Reckless Driving in Haymarket
The maximum penalties for reckless driving in Haymarkert are the same as anywhere else in Virginia. A reckless driving conviction comes with a maximum penalty of 12 months in jail, no driving (or restricted driving) for six months, $2,500 in fines, court costs, 6 points off your Virginia DMV record and a reckless driving conviction is a criminal conviction.
Reckless driving is a class 1 misdemeanor which means that conviction as an adult will result in a permanent criminal record with no possibility of expungement from your record. A criminal conviction may affect security clearance, immigration status, or employment.
