Shenandoah County Traffic Ticket Lawyer: As I write this blog on January 24, 2015, Reckless Driving by Speed in Virginia is driving 20 or more miles per hour over the posted limit or over 8o miles per hour. The Virginia Legislature is considering amending that 80 mile per hour limit to 85 miles per hour. The Governor has stated that it might be time to reconsider the law. The maximum speed limit in Virginia for some areas moved up to 70 miles per hour in 2010.
Shenandoah County Traffic Ticket Lawyer: If this change goes into effect it will still be reckless driving to travel 20 or more miles over the posted limit. The change will be in driving in a 65 mph zone or in a 70 mile per hour zone. In a 65 mile per hour zone one could drive 84 miles per hour and although speeding would not fall into the reckless driving by speed category. In the 70 mile per hour zone one could drive 84 miles per hour which would be speeding but not reckless driving.
Shenandoah County Traffic Ticket Lawyer: The change makes sense in light of the history of the Interstate Highway in America where 80 miles per hour was the speed limit in the 1950s and 1960s. Modern automobiles are exponentially safer than cars of the 1950s and 1960s. Handling, braking, tires, suspension are all light years ahead of even the best vehicles more than a half century ago. We will have to see what the Virginia Legislature decides to do.
