You may be granted a restricted driver’s license. Falls Church Combined Court does grant restricted driver’s licenses if you’re convicted of reckless driving but you must apply with extensive detail about your travel and auto usage. A judge may or may not grant the restricted driver’s license depending on your offense. An experienced NoVa traffic lawyer can help negotiate your driving privileges so that you can still get to work, school, church, or other important obligations.
Reckless driving is considered very serious across all of Virginia, but smaller jurisdictions like Falls Church may come down even heavier on you. Recently they have added cameras to the stop arms of school buses to prevent people illegally passing school buses – which could lead to a reckless driving charge and substantial fines, jail time, and demerit points on your driving record if convicted.
