In Virginia it is unlawful for any person to drive a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs while having a blood alcohol level of 0.08.
If you received a summons for violation of Virginia Code Section 18.2-266, it may be wise to consult with a lawyer to understand your rights and defenses and also to understand the charges and how a conviction would affect your life.
If you drive anywhere in Virginia 20 miles over the posted speed limit, that would constitute reckless driving in violation of Virginia Code Section 46.2-852.
There are different types of reckless driving which may not involve speed but depend on the conditions of the traffic at the time the violation occurs.
Virginia Code Section 46.2-852 states “Irrespective of the maximum speeds permitted by law, any person who drives a vehicle on any highway recklessly or at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger the life, limb or property of any person shall be guilty of reckless driving.”
