When charged with driving over 90 mph in Hopewell, it is at times the court policy in Hopewell, VA to give the defendant a day in jail or suspend his/her license. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, speeds over 90 are considered very serious regardless of what court the charge is heard in.
Today in Hopewell Traffic Court, my client was charged with going 93 mph in a 70 zone on I-295. With both my client and I aware of court policy, I was determined to fight his reckless driving ticket. In the end, not only did my client avoid both jail time and license suspension, his charge was reduced to an infraction called “improper driving” which isn’t a misdemeanor and carries less driving record points.
