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.
