SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Reckless driving; restricted license. Allows a judge to issue a restricted license when he has suspended the license of someone convicted of certain reckless driving offenses. Under current law there is no provision for the issuance of a restricted license for the following reckless driving offenses: faulty brakes; passing on a crest, grade or curve; obstructed view; impaired control; passing two vehicles abreast; driving two abreast in a single lane; passing at a railroad crossing; passing a stopped school bus; failing to give a signal; driving too fast for conditions; exceeding the speed limit; failing to yield right-of-way; and reckless driving on parking lots. Although discretionary with the judge, the period of suspension for these offenses is not less than 60 days nor more than six months. Another statute ( 46.2-392) provides for a period of suspension of not less than 10 days nor more than six months for reckless driving and allows restricted licenses. This bill is a recommendation of the Committee on District Courts.
