The District of Columbia and Virginia’s laws regarding reckless driving permit aggressive prosecution of reckless driving charges due to a large number of reckless driving offenses as defined by the laws.
For example, in Virginia, reckless driving can occur by, among other things, using excessive speed, by racing, by passing or overtaking an emergency vehicle, by passing a school bus, by driving too fast for conditions, by failing to use proper signals, by driving with an obstructed view, or by the manner in which the car is operated by the driver. Convictions for reckless driving can be especially problematic because it is a six-point violation under the law and the conviction will remain on the driver’s record for up to eleven years.
