Fairfax Traffic Offenses
Speeding Ticket? Let Us Help.
Have you been ticketed for a traffic offense that you do not think you
are guilty of? Whether your ticket was for speeding, running a red light
or stop sign, or driving without a license, the legal team at Langone
& Fasullo, PLLC is prepared to get to work to exonerate you.
If you do not contest your ticket, it will be automatically placed on your record. Contact us
to learn more.
Not only is a traffic ticket annoying, it can be costly and can adversely
affect your driving privileges. Increased points on your driver’s
license and higher insurance may eventually lead to your driver’s
license being suspended or revoked.
How Can I Fight a Traffic Ticket?
A good defense starts from the moment you are ticketed. Our attorneys can
help plan a legal strategy based on your specific situation.
At Langone & Fasullo, PLLC, we proudly help residents of Virginia with
the following cases:
Driving on a suspended license: This can result in a fine of $1,500. A second offense is a Class 1 misdemeanor
and a third offense results in a mandatory minimum 10 day jail sentence.
Driving without a license: This is a mid-level misdemeanor in Virginia with a penalty up to six
months in jail and a maximum $1,000 fine. For a first offense, your license
can be suspended for 90 days. For a second offense you can face up to
a year in jail and up to a $2,500 maximum fine.
Reckless driving: This is a Class 1 misdemeanor in Virginia that can result in a fine of
$2,500 and a jail sentence of 12 months. It also carries six DMV points.
Running a red light / stop sign: You can be fined $200 and receive four DMV points (or three points if
you ran a stop sign). A red light camera ticket carries a $50 fine. These
fines vary by county.
Speeding: This results in a maximum fine of $250. If you are convicted of speeding
more than 20 mph over the posted speed limit you can receive six DMV points
and can be charged with a reckless driving criminal charge.
How the Point System Works
In Virginia, a moving violation remains on your record for three years
and a speeding violation remains on your record for five years. If you
accumulate more than 18 points in one year or more than 24 points in two
years, you face the suspension of your license.
