  • Charged with Reckless Driving after rear-end collision - police officer promised to reduce in court - do I really need a lawyer?

    I rear-ended a vehicle in Prince William County, VA and have to appear in court for my Reckless Driving citation on 5/7/14. The police officer was apologetic when she issued the summons and said she has no choice but to issue me a Reckless charge...

    Darren’s Answer

    I would consult with a local attorney about the case. The officer is not required to issue a ticket. The officer is also not permitted by statute to issue an improper driving summons. The penalty for improper driving is a traffic infraction punishable by a fine of not more than $500. I would not put any faith in the officer's "promise" to be helpful in court. Discuss the possibility of lower charges with your lawyer. I go to Prince William regularly so feel free to call to discuss these issues.
