Hello,

No, unfortunately, while a PBJ is an option on a traffic violation in Maryland, there is no PBJ available in the state of Virginia. This is an infraction which would get you 3 points and a fine.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Since there is no PBJ, is it common for a judge to reduce the points if you go and plead guilty?
Traffic Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Criminal Defense Attorney replied 1 year ago

No. If you plead guilty, to the charge, it's a 3-point offense. You would have to negotiate a reduction of charges/points/fine before you plead guilty, otherwise you're stuck with the 3 points.

I just go up and state why I would like to negotiate instead of saying guilty or not guilty?
Traffic Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Criminal Defense Attorney replied 1 year ago

If there's a prosecutor in the court, you can talk to the prosecutor before the case gets called. If the police prosecute their own cases, you'd talk to the police officer before the case is called.

If there's no prosecutor and no police officer shows up, you can ask the judge to dismiss the case.
