Can I really be charged with reckless driving for passing a school bus?

Yes, and many judges consider this to be a very serious violation. In Fairfax, I have heard judges say comments like "It's bright yellow, as big as a barn, and we put flashing lights on them. If you can't see a school bus, then maybe you shouldn't have a license!"  

I would not recommend trying to defend one of these without an Attorney. A good Fairfax County Traffic Defense Attorney will usually try to negotiate a reduction of the charge and keep the Reckless Driving charge away from a judge.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to get the best possible result for each client, while including the client in the decision-making process along the way.  Every case is different, so we strive to gain detailed knowledge of the special facts and then find all of the relevant law to help get the best result either at trial or by negotiation.

Areas We Serve

Our Office is located at Fairfax Courthouse.   The Courthouse and Jail are right outside my window and you can’t park any closer than our office.  We focus on defense of DUI, traffic, and other misdemeanor and drug charges.
