    Re: Fairfax County Reckless Driving Ticket

    i went to court with a reckless of 92 in a 55, i took a driving school, got my 5 merit points and got my speedo calibrated,

    i faced the judge and proceeded without an attorney and signed the waiver,
    he look at my record and said i had a possible jail time, and asked if i wanted to continue, i did, he commended my good driving record, and nodded when i said i got my speedo calibrated, was off by 2 mph,
    b

    he said because of my record, he let me go but not without a fine of $500..i was relieved, and gladly paid the fine..
    he said if i ever get another reckless, he wouldn't hesitate to have me incarcerated.."means go to jail for dummies"

    Anyway at night, especially in Fairfax county, they're gonna look for any excuse to pull you over. To make sure you're not drunk, try and search the car for drugs etc.

    Should get a lawyer if you want a lesser charge.

    yeah what really sux is having a reckless on your driving record. many employers do extensive background investigations and if this is found, they may not hire you. I do not know how this would affect someone attempting to get a clearance. Its amazing to me that VA will slap you with a Class 1 Midemeanor for just going 20 miles over the speed limit. Many times that is the average speed of traffic.

    I got a reckless when I was 15 the night my bro turned 18 and I had my permit. In the middle of GB I decided to burn down the tires at a intersection at 12:00 at night and I didnt see the cop in the bank drive through and got it reduced to improper since there was n o1 around me LoL

    kinda curious if anyone has experience in the hiring process and not getting a job due to something like this... I've got 2 reckless on my record, one when i was 16 or 17, and then one about 2.5 years ago...I always hear people talking about it, but try to rationalize to myself that "it's not that big of a deal" since your driving record really doesnt affect your ability to perform a job (unless your job requires driving that is)...I could also see how they would choose someone equally qualified WITHOUT the garbage on their record however, which blows... won't be long before im looking for a REAL job... anyone have experience with this???

    I've never had a problem getting a job and I work in the IT field. Just make sure you tell them about it and don't just let them find it. It also will not affect your ability to get a clearance either, just as I said before make sure you tell them about it. Honesty is the best policy.

    i've got 2 reckless tickets and 2 racing tickets, none of them have affected me getting a professional job.

    Re: Fairfax County Reckless Driving Ticket

    you should've got a GOOD attorney,

    I've had 2, I repeat TWO reckless driving tickets, BOTH of which were reduced to improper driving which is not a class 1 misdeamenor, the attorney might be a couple grand but think about it, this will be on your record for ELEVEN years and a lot of places do full background checks and if this crap pops up, they may not and most probably won't hire you. I know it's ridiculous, but hey, this is VA.

    That's not law though. They can put you in jail for up to a year if they really wanted to for reckless (I doubt they would put anyone in jail for that long for reckless driving though). So if you do get pulled over for going like 88mph don't assume that you won't spend any time in jail.
