Keefer Law Firm provides this resource to explain what happens when you receive a speeding ticket in Page County, Virginia. As you will see, while not a jailable offense, a speeding ticket in Page County can adversely affect your driving record and your wallet.
You will not typically go to jail for a Page County, VA speeding ticket if you were not charged with reckless driving as a result of the speed. You will typically only pay court costs and a fine, and have demerit points added to your driving record. If you have several speeding ticket convictions you face a harsher penalty. Any time you are convicted of a driving related offense you may face higher insurance costs. In addition, many job occupations depend on a clean driving record. Speeding tickets and similar traffic violations can lead to dismissal.
Insurance companies set their rates based on the perceived risk they will have to pay a claim. Speeding is the number one cause of traffic accidents in the United States. Thus, if you have a speeding conviction the insurance companies can justify charging you more for insurance. Some companies will not run your driving history until you reapply for insurance, or attempt to make a change in your policy. Most all insurance companies will, however, run your driver’s record at least one time per year.
There is never a legal justification for speed in Virginia. If you were responding to an emergency, or faced some other situation outside of your control, then the courts may take that into account when setting your fine amount, but it does not help you avoid a conviction.
We can usually handle your Page County, VA speeding ticket without you even having to appear in court. By hiring an attorney to represent you, you may be able to avoid having demerit points added to your driver’s license, have your speeding ticket reduced to a non-moving violation, and avoid a conviction altogether.
