Sec. 25-101. Same—Reckless driving for exceeding speed of sixty-five or seventy-five miles per hour.
When any person shall be convicted of reckless driving for exceeding a speed of sixty-five (65) or seventy-five (75) miles per hour, as the case may be, upon the highways of this city under section 25-152, then in addition to any other penalties provided by law, except in those cases for which revocation of licenses is provided in Code of Virginia, Section 46.1-417, the operator's or chauffeur's license of such person may be suspended by the court or judge for a period of not less than sixty (60) days nor more than six (6) months. In case of conviction the court or judge shall order the surrender of the license to the court where it shall be disposed of in accordance with the provisions of Code of Virginia, section 46.1-425. Where the conviction is a second conviction which would require revocation under the provisions of Code of Virginia, section 46.1-417, the court shall suspend the operator's or chauffeur's license of such person and thereupon transmit the same to the division of motor vehicles as provided by law. If such person so convicted has not obtained a license required by Code of Virginia, chapter 5 (section 46.1-348 et seq.) of Title 46.1, or is a nonresident, such court shall direct in the judgment of conviction that such person shall not drive or operate any motor vehicle in this city for a period of not less than sixty (60) days nor more than six (6) months. (Code 1959, § 20-69)
