DWI, Reckless Driving, and Driving on Suspended License are serious offenses, a Class 1 Misdemeanor in Virginia. A first offense is punishable with up to one year in jail, up to a $2500 fine, a one year suspension of your privilege to operate a motor vehicle and other sanctions. Higher blood alcohol levels, subsequent offenses and other aggravating factors include additional sanctions and mandatory active jail sentences.
