Default Virginia Ups Speeding Tickets

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...062201781.html

From Article, these fees are on TOP of court fees:
Reckless - 1050
First DUI- 2,250
Driving w/o license - 900

Keep in mind, this may take awhile, since it still has to go through the house.

doesn't apply to out of staters

wreckless is considered 20mph over or =>80mph, and that will cost you $350 to the court, plus $700 to the DMV, plus the ticket and regular court fees.

yum. I'm pretty sure it's effective July 1st....but maybe if fairfax county courts sold of some of thier nice plasma screens and stop tripling the size of the building, there would be more share of the money to go around as is.

oh and what about raising the goddamn artificially low speed limits all over this area? please, 55 on the beltway? it's backwards compatible with model Ts.

I interperet every speed sign to equal +19mph.

VA has it's thumbs up it's ***....the law makers down in Richmond are too busy swiming in all the cash from up here to worry about anything other than why the air smells so goddamn awful in richmond. The have no clue about the ongoings of noVA, and are very left-winged compared to up here where is more right-winged and efficient.

check out the MI responsibility act... you are still getting off lite.

in MI:
DWI/DUI: pay ticket & court costs + "responsibility act fees"
the responsibility acts requires that you pay ~$1000/year for 3-5 years or your license gets suspended.

it kicks in for DUI/DWI, no proof of insurance (even if you provide proof on your court date), driving without a license (forgot your wallet even), speeds in excess of 85 mph or 25+ over the limit, etc, etc.

I can understand raping drunk drivers, but some of the other stuff is just stupid.

the "civil fees" don't apply to you if you are out of state, however, radars detectors are still illegal.

Hm technically if I am recklessly speeding I'm better off losing control of my car and crashing into a wall. Might be cheaper.

Well, technically, in VA determination of reckless driving is at the discretion of the officer. So you don't even need to be going 20+ over.

true, but once your speeding over a certain speed, no matter what you are doing, it becomes reckless, at least in NC.

yeah that's how it's here...however local police can put it under a county offense not state, and over 20 can just be speeding...i forgot exactly how it works...its happened to me before.

but technically here, 20 over is an automatic wreckless.

Ya, my friend just went to court for doing 22 over. He's 22 and it was his first ticket ever. Never even got so much as a parking ticket and they gave him a $1000 fine plus all the other bull **** fines and 6 points.
