When you are pulled over for a traffic offense, you may not be too worried about the consequences. However, reckless driving is different from other types of traffic offenses in the state of Virginia. Reckless driving convictions can carry heavy penalties. In fact, it is all too common in Virginia that reckless driving convictions result in very heavy fines, license suspension, and even jail time. In addition, a reckless driving conviction in Virginia will almost certainly remain on your criminal record for life, as Virginia does not have a qualifying expungement statute for such a conviction.
