I feel bad for you guys. VA sounds like a great place for an enthusiast to avoid. $1000+ for a first ticket at age 22 is outrageous! I realize that any violation is left up to the officer, but here in WI I've never heard of anything like that. In fact, I got caught "driving fast" with two other sports cars (75 in a 45) and the worst the officer said he could've given us was $300 and 6 points. Ended up with $200 and a disorderly w/motor vehicle charge. Btw, I'm new, so hi all! I'm sure you'll catch me in the emanage forums asking noob questions shortly.

here in hicksville SD(city of about 150K people) you can drag race down the busiest street in town with three other cars and only get a exhibition driving ticket which is a $90 fine. The worst I have ever heard of someone getting is a wreckless driving charge which is still only around $200. You guys are getting raped

i lived in MI, VA, NC and now CA. VA has been my least favorite by far. NC has been my favorite. owning and operating a car? MI was the easiest, NC was the cheapest by far.

Actually in VA, if your radar detector is "Built-In" to the car, they can't really do anything about it. I learned that when I was pulled over in VA w/ PA tags from some state trooper (as he wrote me a reckless).

I got a reckless charge for practicing drifts in a HUGE parking lot....with cones no less. Done it before at other places and never had a problem. Setup cones, do a little practice session, pull out the skateboards...you know, I donít go and **** **** up. This last time the cops werenít having it...

I have till September to finish my year of probation and just finished my 25 hours of community service. Nothing goes on the record, no fine, just pay the lawyer.

See, I thought that too, but my lawyer told me if the parking lot has 10+ parking spots, that they can. They said that by me having a friend in the car that I was being reckless. My friend said he didnít mind and that I do it all the time, not sure if that helped the situation.

http://www.courts.state.va.us/publications/hb_3202.pdf

Check that out....

$300 annual fee for an operational N2O system, and that's as bad as your second refusal of a blood/breathalyzer test, and that's as bad as using a commercial vehicle to distribute a controlled substance!?!?! All 3 get $300, 3 installment civil assessments, what a bunch of B.S.

PS - Looks like it's law: http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp...bil&val=hb3202

No, I am glad that I am a gun carrying Texas resident. Although MD seems to think that I should be disarmed... which sorta sucks ***. Where is the logic of being in the military and NOT having a weapon?

Bottom line: Guns don't kill people. Ninjas kill people.
