Increased Fines For Virginia Traffic Violations

There are some new statutes that will affect Virginia drivers. These extremely high fees will have to be paid over 3 years and make it even more important to make sure you’re represented by a lawyer. Fines have increased for traffic violations like:

- Driving while your driver's license is suspended or revoked
- Reckless or aggressive driving
- Driving while intoxicated
- Any other misdemeanor conviction for a driving and/or motor vehicle related violation
- Any felony conviction for a driving or motor vehicle-related offense

Keep in mind that a conviction won’t just cost you a court fine, but may also result in heavy fines by the Dept. of Motor Vehicles. And if you fail to pay these fees, your Virginia license may be suspended. An attorney will be aware of these new enhanced fees and will work to avoid convictions for charges associated with these new fees.
