Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-294.1 is, by its terms, narrow in scope. The Virginia General Assembly did not intend for a single driving incident to give rise to only a single traffic conviction, regardless of how many statutes are violated, unless the statutes violated are those proscribing driving under the influence of alcohol and reckless driving.
  • Whenever any person is charged with a violation of § 18.2-266 [the drunk driving statute]… and reckless driving growing out of the same act or acts and is convicted of one of these charges, the court shall dismiss the remaining charge.
