Hey mooby, my younger sister just got her license a month ago and quickly acquired 2 speeding tickets in a four day span, both 20 mph over the speed limit (reckless driving). She and the parents got a lawyer and went to court both times (two counties) and she walked away with a total of $95 in fines and 3 points. One judge said she will overturn the decision if she has any traffic violation from now until the end of the year. She got lucky and maybe you will too. Good luck!

Re: Mooby Needs Legal Advice

I don't have any legal advice for you mooby. However, I have been in a similar situation -- I just had a reasonable cop. Once I got caught going 101 in a 70, but the cop knocked it down to 98 so that it wouldn't be a reckless driving charge (that was in FL). I just paid a fine that was about $250, and I took a defensive driving class. No points, no court. I didn't say anything to the cop, except "yes sir" and "no sir". I didn't try to explain anything, and I wasn't interested in talking my way out of it. I think this attitude can help to make a cop more willing to be reasonable.

I will not say that speeding is wrong, or dangerous all the time. Sure there is a level of danger surrounding driving, and speeding increases that danger. However, going the speed limit on a crowded highway can be much more dangerous than exceeding the speed limit on an empty highway. Also, there are several books written by retired police officers which describe how to beat speeding tickets. They almost always suggest that you fight it.

Regarding drugs and overdose: I had a friend who died from an overdose on heroin. The other people with him didn't call an ambulance because they didn't want to get arrested, and they were too high. I seriously think they are F'ed up, because neither reason is legitimate. However, there should be avenues to get help without risking legal trouble. It just goes to show you what the priorities are: busting criminals first (drug users ), then saving lives second.

Re: Mooby Needs Legal Advice

Just an update, I went to court today and I pled guilty to reckless driving, the judge was pretty decent about it because I had no priors, but I do have to pay a $482 fine and I am getting 6 points on my license. He gave me until the end of the year to pay the fine too, so I'll be able to get it handled. The only negatives are that my car insurance is probably gonna go up, and I won't be able to get rid of that conviction.

And about that friend (ex friend now) that I thought was od'ing, she's in jail for the next 1 1/2 years because she ran away from home and was found sleeping on the streets of New York with drugs on her. Me and my buddies stopped hanging out with her because she cheated on her b/f (the guy I was riding with at the time).

I don't know what the laws are in VA, but if at all possible, go to your DMV and ask if they have any tests you can take to remove some of those points. I know we have that option here in PA.

Write it off to lessons learned!
It will be a bit painful for a while, but........
And, rightly or wrongly, you tried to do the right thing for the right reasons, for a friend. THAT, makes you, "stand up".

It is here as well...

Mooby, if you voluntarily take a driver improvement course (not mandated by your case) then they will remove points off your license. 6 points isn't the end of the world insurance-wise.

Re: Mooby Needs Legal Advice

In Va. insurance co. look at your actual driving records and not the points on your lic.. The only thing taking the course will do is drop you points with DMV and I would not worry about that unless you get another ticket.

Re: Mooby Needs Legal Advice

I have to go to the DMV later this week to get some medical paperwork turned in, so I'm gonna check and see what I can do as far as getting some of those points removed. If I get 2 points removed then I'll be happy, that way I won't have to worry as much if I get another ticket.
