Today I was pulled over doing 86 in a 55. My first question is, Are VA police officers allowed to NOT show me the radar gun if i asked them to? Before I signed the papers to a court hearing, i asked if i can see the radar gun. His exact words were "You do not have that right in the state of Virginia." (I have 4 passengers who can back me up on what he said). I've read up on all the other Reckless driving in Virginia threads and know whats going on. From what I've read that the points won't go on my NY license, which is great. If you guys were in my shoes what would you do?
-18 years old
-this is my 2nd speeding ticket
-student at American University (Washington D.C.)
Although points will not stick to my license, the fact that I have reckless driving on my record will bother me. What I plan to do is : take one of those driving courses/classes (do you guys know where I can register or if I can take it online?) before the court hearing on Nov. 30th and possibly get a lawyer if needed(I read on one of the threads that it will be a waste of money cause points won't carry). Thanks for your help in advance. I hope I explained everything clearly.
