Speeding offenses rather than reckless driving traffic tickets are given whenever one drives fewer than 20 miles above the posted speed. If a person drives from between 1 mph to 19 mph above the speed limit, he/she can be given a summons for speeding though candidly Attorney Wegman sees very few speeding tickets for speeding fewer than 9 over. If, however, the speed limit sign reads "strictly enforced," one has to pay close attention or he may be charged with speeding.
A speeding offense is either a 3 or 4 demerit violation. The best driving records in Virginia are +5. A speeding ticket subtracts either 3 or 4 points from whatever points one already has. 0-9 speeding offenses = 3 demerits and 10-19 over speeding violations = 4 demerit speeding violations.
Attorney Wegman represents a lot of folks passing through. North Carolina drivers must be aware that even though not considered reckless driving in Virginia, speeding 15 mph or more is considered reckless driving in North Carolina. In short, even though one's license would not be suspended by a Virginia court, it would be suspended for up to 30 days once North Carolina is notified.
Speeding offenses can also result in collateral consequences from an increase in insurance premiums and, depending on the number of demerits in a given year, a suspension imposed by DMV or a requirement to attend driver improvement classes.
