Q. In Virginia,a minor with reckless driving ticket has been told not to appear in court because court has no record of it
A: this is not a question
Q. Hello, I got a reckless driving ticket 76/45 construction zone, law section 82-1-6-46.2-862(i).
A: Usually a lawyer can help. 31 mph over the speed limit is a pretty high speed reckless driving but depending on the jurisdiction a lawyer can probably help you. Call the traffic lawyer who practices regularly in the court where you got the ticket.
Q. I have a FTA warrant from 2009 for speeding and I was deployed on the court date. I need to quash the warent, ple no con
A: You will likely need to hire a lawyer who can advise you on the particular court it's in. Generally courts in Virginia don't issue FTA charges unless it's a really high speed. In my experience the military won't let you deploy if you tell them about a charge like that. Either way, if the charge was serious enough to warrant a FTA then you will likely need to face the music. Talk to a lawyer in the location where the charge is and they can better advise you on the specifics.
