If you’re not from Virginia (and even if you are), you may be surprised that It’s a Class I Misdemeanor to exceed 80 miles per hour. That’s the same class of crime as DUI, possession of marijuana, and assault.
Given such harsh penalties, recently, the Virginia Senate passed a bill to increase the maximum speed from 80 mph to 85 mph. Here’s the link.
However, keep in mind, the bill is not yet law and may be defeated down the line.
If you’re a Virginia driver, do you think this is a good idea? Let BenGlassLaw know your thougts.
