Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • The distinction between negligent driving and reckless driving is the critical element in determining punishment under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-357. In defining the conduct that gives rise to felony punishment under 46.2-357(B)(2), the legislature uses the phrase, driving that endangers the life, limb, or property of another, language virtually identical to that found in the statute defining reckless driving. Drunk driving does not per se deserve felony treatment under § 46.2-357. While evidence of intoxication is a factor that might bear upon proof of dangerous or reckless driving in a given case, it does not, of itself, prove reckless driving. The essence of the offense of reckless driving lies not in the act of operating a vehicle, but in the manner and circumstances of its operation.
