North Carolina Candidate Wins with Help from President Trump

In North Carolina, the special election had about 190,000 voters. But the election reflected the great divide among the voters. And it has been impossible to miss since the election of President Trump.

Dan Bishop is the man who won the seat by two points, by beating the Democrat Dan MccReady. But with Trump’s new strategies, the once central voters are now in the sidelines. The upper middle class voters now aren’t an important part of the voters.

But now, that the main voters aren’t that important it may cost President Trump his victory. Even though Dan Bishop pulled off a victory for Trump it is bad news.

Trump needs as much support he can get, but he isn’t getting much from the upper middle class. Even though Trump and the party celebrated the win of Bishop, the Washington Post ABC Poll doused their expectations.

The survey that took place predicted a trial heat between Joseph R Biden Jr and Trump. But all he Trump believers think that Trump has another victory card up his sleeve and can manage the Electoral college victory.

Representative Patrick McHenry of North Carolina said that ”Their run to the left is the great opportunity for us to get back the majority and for the president to get re-elected”.

The party believes that there are Two Americas. One are the privileged tooling around in BMWs. And the others who have the blue collared jobs. And they have to play along the margins to make the win possible for the party.

Trump can only score a win if he plays along the margins. Mr. Miller who is an old Democrat of North Carolina said that he was saddened by the sudden change in North Carolina. He expressed how disappointed he was that the state has “gone so republic”.

Everyone believes that it is time the election campaigns threw the old way out and adopted new ways to win this election.

Reckless Driving in the State of Virginia

The state of Virginia is strict in its enforcement of laws against reckless driving. According to section 46.2-852 of the Virginia Code, reckless driving is listed as a criminal offense. In addition, the Virginia Code categorizes all driving that endangers the life and property of others as reckless.

Several behaviors that motorists exhibit while behind the wheels can qualify as reckless driving in Virginia. “Reckless driving causes nearly a third of all deaths involving major car accidents, which are more than 13,000 each year,” explains attorney Karin Riley Porter. As a result, you can be charged by an officer and can be found guilty or not guilty by a judge.

Types of Reckless Driving

Reckless driving is in different forms and includes:

1. Driving a vehicle with a mechanical fault

Va. Code § 46.2-853 considers driving a vehicle with faulty brakes as a reckless driving offense. Therefore, if a driver cannot maintain proper vehicle control, the driver will be held liable for reckless driving. However, if a driver could prove that they didn’t have prior knowledge that the vehicle was faulty, it would be possible to avoid conviction.

2. Not giving out the right signals when required

Not giving out a signal while driving on Virginia road is an offense under section 46.2-860 of the Virginia Code. Motorists are required to start signaling 50 feet away from the place they would be turning where the speed limit is not above 35 mph. In situations where the speed limit is above 35 mph, drivers are required to signal 100 feet away from where they would take a turn.

3. Driving alongside another vehicle on a single lane road

In Virginia, driving two vehicles abreast on a one-lane road is considered a reckless driving offense. This rule, however, only applies to vehicles and has no implications on motorcycles and bikes. If found liable, the offender will face charges.

4. Overspeeding

Different Virginia roads are subject to variable speed limits. A driver can face charges for reckless driving if they exceed the speed limit specified by law on each road network. According to the Va. Code §46.2-862, a driver can face convictions for reckless driving if they exceed the specified speed limit by 20 mph or drive above 80 mph.

5. Driving with an impaired view

Some drivers overload their cars or carry passengers who prevent them from seeing all sides of the road. Overloading is most common in trucks. If the passenger’s sitting position in any way obstructs the driver’s view, then the driver can be charged for reckless driving.

6. Racing on Public Property

Section 46.2-865 of the Virginia Code considers car racing on any property that is open to the members of the public without authorization as reckless driving. If found guilty, the state can withdraw the license of the driver for up to six months.

Penalties for Reckless Driving in Virginia

A reckless driving conviction may attract different penalties to the offender, some of which may include:

  • A suspension of the driver’s license for six months or more
  • Up to one-year jail term
  • Fine amounting to $2,500
  • Increase in auto insurance
  • Ineligibility for car rentals
  • Possibility of permanent seizure of vehicle if found guilty of unauthorized car racing

Conclusion

Reckless driving is a severe offense in Virginia. If you are charged with the crime and convicted, it can stay in your driving records for up to 11 years. However, with the help of an experienced Virginia traffic attorney, you can get a lesser charge for the offense.
