Virginia Legislation Would Boost DUI Fine

Virginia state legislators have reached a compromise on a bill that would levy ‘abuser’ fees on certain drivers. The bill that was agreed upon by the Commonwealth Transportation Board calls for the state’s worst drivers, including those charged with Virginia DUI, to pay a civil penalty for three consecutive years.

In the case of a DUI, the fine would be $750 each year. Other driving offenses would be subject to similar fines, especially if drivers accrue eight demerits on their driving record.

The legislation is now up for a vote in the House and Senate.
