Reckless driving in Virginia is classified as a class one misdemeanor, which is a criminal offense transferrable to your home state. A speeding ticket is normally punishable by fines of $5 per mile over the posted speed limit. However, the maximum penalty for reckless driving is $2,5000 plus a six month loss of your Virginia driver's license and 12 months in jail. The charge can also result in increased points on your driving record and increased insurance premiums.
