Garret v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant appealed the judgment of the trail court (Virginia), which convicted him of reckless driving in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-852. The trial court held that Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-920 did not protect defendant, a police officer, from criminal prosecution for conduct constituting reckless disregard for the safety of persons and property. The trial court refused to apply a “reasonable officer” standard and impose penalties for reckless driving.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • In enacting Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-920, the legislature balanced the need for prompt, effective action by law enforcement officers and other emergency vehicle operators with the safety of the motoring public. The purpose of § 46.2-920 is to give some leniency to the drivers of police, fire, and ambulance vehicles in certain emergency situations.
