The Impossibility Defense in Speeding Cases

I talk to clients every day about Reckless Speeding cases in Virginia. One of the most common complaints they have is that the cop must have it wrong because they couldn't go that fast in their car, or they couldn't go that fast on that road. In Fairfax County Reckless cases, clients often make these claims when they are accused of speeds in the mid 80's.

Fairfax Reckless Attorney Paul McGlone recommends this article explaining how Virginia punishes high speed cases much more than Maryland.   The article references an article by Bob Battle, a top attorney in Richmond, Virginia.

Link to Sun Article


The Fairfax Criminal Defense firm McGlone Law Firm, P.C., works directly with Bob Battle in Richmond, helping Mr. Battle and his clients here in Fairfax.   Attorney Bob Battle has worked to put together a statewide network of hand-picked attorneys and has chosen Fairfax Attorney Paul McGlone to help with defense of traffic and criminal cases in Fairfax County.  

As pointed out in the Sun article, Fairfax County Reckless is one of the harshest jurisdictions, and folks are routinely sent to jail for speeds in excess of 90 mph.   Dresser, the Sun reporter, actually calls for harsher laws in Maryland, holding Virginia as an example to promote community safety.
