Pulled over for driving 78 mph on a 55 mph road? In Virginia, it will soon cost more than $1,000. This isn’t because Virginians are especially reckless drivers who require draconian disincentives in the name of public safety–it’s a Richmond money grab. The state legislature wants to increase revenue but doesn’t want to be accused of raising taxes. It’s being called a “civil remedial fee.” And thus our state troopers will become glorified tax collectors. Brilliant.
