Default Don't speed in Virginia!

How about a $3,550 speeding ticket PLUS a 5 year surcharge of $700 a year till your points drop off?
Well, welcome to Virginia's new traffic fine system!!
Check this link out for full details:

This is for real. I've talked with relatives who live in Va, and they tell me it's now law!! So be VERY careful when passing thru Virginia! Glenn

I read about the new laws last week. This is how they plan on funding road repairs and new roads there. From what I have read there is a good possibility that if someone decides to take the state to court the new penalties will be found to be unconstitutional. Never know. The extra surcharges apply only to Virginia residents with current Virginia licenses, not out of staters. I saw one surcharge for a burnt out bulb will be $350.00. Also most of the infractions are considered felonies and will be permanantly on your record. The judge has no leeway as far as the surcharges and convictions go, if found guilty you must pay 1/3 at the close of the trial, then you can make two more payments.

Yep, that's what I heard also. On that page are links to other states new laws. Did you see where they are CRUSHING modified cars in California, some without even going to court over? Man, these ricers have really screwed it up for us!! Glenn

I see alot of for sale property in Virginia's future. Cheap land, and with the money you save you can hire a driver to chauffeur you around so you don't get the points.

Yeah, the wife and I have never much liked Virginia. The scenery is pleasant, but the government needs to be tarred and feathered and put out to sea on a raft. We had to pass through that state each year on the way to one of our shows in Maryland. And it was a partial reason why we decided to stop doing that show.

I remember a while back we went to a state park in Virginia, and you could barely see the scenery for all the signs warning of dire consequences for straying off of the official path through the park. Plus they have had a "make work" project on route 95 for as long as I can remember.

For the size of that fine, all it will do is to give speeders incentive to run from the law if they think they have half a chance of escaping.
