Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • For a defendant to be found guilty of reckless driving by speed under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-862, the Commonwealth must prove that the defendant was driving on a highway in the Commonwealth, and was driving (i) at a speed of twenty miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable maximum speed limit or (ii) in excess of eighty miles per hour regardless of the applicable maximum speed limit. Improper driving, Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-869, is not a lesser-included offense of reckless driving by speed, Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-862. Every commission of reckless driving by speed does not also constitute a commission of improper driving. In addition, improper driving is not composed entirely of the elements of reckless driving by speed. Improper driving requires an additional finding of slight culpability, an element excluded from the reckless driving by speed statute.
