Driving down the railroad track and blocking The VRE is not reckless driving because it's not a public road or parking lot. Never a dull moment.

I am spending a week with state troopers from across the mid Atlantic getting certified as a police academy instructor for police speed measurement.
Really it is just a chance to crash a cop party and play with a $4000 Lidar device.

STREET SIGNS :: How often to you pay attention to what jurisdiction you are in while driving through Northern Virginia? If you have an emergency and call 9-1-1, you will be transferred to the closest department, but what if it isn't an emergency and you still need to call the Police?

The general "rule" regarding jurisdictional borders is that the street signs in Alexandria are GREEN, in Arlington they are WHITE, and in Fairfax they are BLUE. Keep an eye out the next time you drive through Farlington or the Rt. 7 corridor and test yourself. Be aware of your surroundings and drive safe!

Monday's Mattress-mobile? Just a tip: this isn't safe OR legal...but it actually happens on the streets of Alexandria. Don't try this at home, or anywhere else.


Had a good day in court. Won a 90 mph in a 55 mph zone Reckless Driving by Speed case in front of a tough judge. Found a problem with the officer's calibrations.

(Each case is unique and this result does not predict the outcome in any other case. If you want to know the likely outcome of your case, give me a call and we can talk about it).

Got a 99 mph RD reduced to 9 mph over speeding this week with zero defenses (purely mitigating evidence). My client really pulled his weight prepping with community service, speedometer calibrations and multiple DMV courses. You know you do good when you go to pay the fine and the court clerk looks at the ticket and says: "Holy crap! I can't believe he did that!" (referring to the judge).

Got a 99 mph reckless driving reduced to 9 over the posted speeding ticket - big victory for a great client.

*This result does not predict future outcome and each case is unique. in fact it was an awesome outcome because it is so unusual and so that's why I am posting about it but the State Bar makes us put these disclaimers in anyways.

What if my officer doesn't show up to court?

If you are have a case in traffic or criminal court in Virginia and your officer doesn't show up (rare in Virginia) then the judge has a couple options. The most common option is to continue the case.

Check out this picture of a sinkhole on Harbour Rd in Farifax county. What out when driving through puddles.

I saw this truck which had a bumper sticker which said: "I am only speeding because I have to POOP."

I got a reckless driving charge knocked down to a non moving violation by arguing what I refer to as the "Hoopty Defense".

The Hoopty Defense is basically when a young inexperienced driver was speeding because the speedometer was busted in their "piece-o-crap hoopty".

The key to the hoopty defense is making the judge and the gallery laugh their heads off by sayings "hoopty" to the judge as loudly, dramatically and seriously as possible.

(Don't try this at home kids - it only works well with an attorney. It sounds cheeky coming from the defendant and remember these results don't predict the outcome of any other case, each case is different.)
