It is important to talk with an attorney that practices in the jurisdiction where you got a ticket. The rules are different in each county and city. You might get a letter that says “hire me and stay out of jail.” Here in Southwest Virginia there is no real chance of going to jail unless you exceed 100 mph on the interstate, or 90 mph with a speed limit of 55 mph. Judges here don’t consider a license suspension unless you go about 95 mph on the interstate or 85 mph on road with a 55 mph speed limit. Your license will likely only be suspended in Virginia, so if you have an out of state license it might not transfer to your home state. Please consult a local attorney to your area.
