Reckless Driving in Virginia when Out of State

With airline tickets skyrocketing, more travelers than ever are now using their vehicle to explore the country. While driving is a great way to see the states on a budget, being charged with a serious crime such as reckless driving could become a financial and legal nightmare. If you are an out-of-state driver who has recently been ticketed in Virginia or planning on driving through Virginia in the near future, then you should know exactly how these tickets can impact your life.

The Law in Virginia on Texting and Driving

Texting and driving is distracted driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3,179 people died in distracted driving accidents in 2014. Another 431,000 were injured. As per the Virginia Tech Traffic Institute, your eyes are off of the road for an average of five seconds while texting. At 55 miles per hour, you're covering the length of a football field in that five seconds. On a highway, most people don't travel at 55 miles per hour either.
