Virginia Beach Reckless Driving Attorney: § 46.2-864. Reckless driving on parking lots, etc…

A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who operates any motor vehicle at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person:

   1. On any driveway or premises of a church, school, recreational facility, or business property open to the public; or

   2. On the premises of any industrial establishment providing parking space for customers, patrons, or employees; or

   3. On any highway under construction or not yet open to the public.

SUFFICIENCY OF THE EVIDENCE. –Because the extent of damage to both cars permitted the trial court to infer a reckless rate of speed despite defendant’s self-serving and contradictory estimates, the evidence was sufficient to support defendant’s conviction for reckless driving in a parking lot in violation of § 46.2-864. Mehta v. City of Norfolk, 2007 Va. App. LEXIS 149 (Apr. 10, 2007).
