At Shannon & Bedois, P.C., we believe in providing thorough and thoughtful legal counsel.

But when you engage our attorneys instead, we defend your ticket and work to reduce your costs and save you time.

Virginia’s strict reckless driving and other laws mean costly fines
To deter driving and traffic offenses, Virginia legislators have enacted severe penalties for violations. In one instance, a speeding ticket can cost well over $3,000. Direct and indirect costs add to the stress that comes with a traffic violation, and they can put a damper on your finances and savings. Out-of-pocket costs include:
- Speeding violation fines of $6 for every mile per hour you drive above the speed limit
- The maximum fine for a misdemeanor reckless driving is $2,500, plus court costs
- Driving-improvement clinic fee
- Court costs
- Insurance-rate increase
- Transportation costs for you and your family if your license is suspended or revoked
Traffic tickets come with nonmonetary costs too
You may be charged with a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the traffic violation. For reckless driving charges, your license may be automatically suspended. The risk of losing your license, potential probation or incarceration can be lessened when you have our experienced traffic ticket lawyers on your side.
