Many of my clients are surprised how tough Virginia’s traffic laws are. You can be charged with reckless driving for going 20 or more miles per hour over the speed limit. Route 13 has a few spots that change from 55 mph to 45 mph and this often comes as a surprise to out of state vacationers traveling through Accomack.

Typically, traffic cases and reckless driving cases are heard at either 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., or 2:00 p.m., on Mondays and Wednesdays.  You should check your summons for the exact date, time, and court room your appearance is required at.
The Accomack Commonwealth Attorney’s office typically doesn’t get involved with prosecuting a reckless driving charge at the General District Court level. However, the Commonwealth Attorney’s office can get involved if it wanted to. Gary Agar is the current Commonwealth Attorney. Assistant Commonwealth Attorney, Spencer Morgan, will often handle traffic matters.
