Reckless Speeding in Emporia, Virginia is Serious

The potential punishment for reckless driving is:

  • 0-12 months in jail (yes, a judge can put you in jail for 12 months for reckless driving by speed although jail time is normally seen at higher speeds)
  • 0-6 months license suspension (watch out for this, some states automatically suspend your license for ANY conviction of reckless driving)
  • $0-2500 fine

Usually the worst results (jail time and license suspension) are reserved for cases where you are driving at a very high speed. Most Virginia judges will not consider the possibility of jail until you get to either 90 mph OR 30 mph over the speed limit but that is not an absolute rule.
