Going 11 miles per hour over the speed limit on some interstate sections in Virginia could lead to a reckless driving charge later this summer.
Virginia has begun a process of evaluating whether to increase the speed limit from 65 mph to 70 mph on its interstate highways. Several parts of interstates 77 and 81 in Western Virginia are under consideration.
Because the legal definition of reckless driving includes going faster than 80 mph, the custom of some drivers to exceed the limit by 10 mph will bring them dangerously close to a major legal sanction.
