At some point in life, nearly every driver in the United States will see a police officer’s flashing red or blue lights in their rear-view mirror. You may have already had such experience. Most drivers in this situation will not receive a mere warning only. A citation is probably imminent for most, while others may actually be arrested.
If you have been charged with a traffic offense in Virginia, you are probably uncertain as to what you should do next.

Traffic Violations and Penalties Can Vary Greatly in Virginia
Many things can go wrong on the road or highway. Thus, at any point, you could be facing charges for any number of violations under Virginia law. Clearly, some offenses are more significant than others. But, even minor traffic violations can linger on your record and have enduring effects for years. It is essential that you have experienced counsel to vigorously protect and defend your interests.
What would be considered a traffic violation? There are far too many to list, but some of the more common are:
• Aggressive Driving
• Driving Under the Influence
• Driving on Suspended License
• Driving Without a Valid License
• Failure to Obey Highway Sign or Signal
• Leaving the Scene of an Accident
• Reckless Driving / Speeding
What are the penalties? The penalties in court can range from steep fines to suspension or revocation of driving privileges all the way up to incarceration. As if that is not enough, the often hidden penalties come later in the form of demerit points, increased insurance rates, difficulties with employment, etc.
