Virginia Traffic Laws

Most moving violations carry a minimum penalty of $100, and drivers who commit moving violations are assessed points for each violation they commit.

If you have been injured in an accident, stay in your car. Not only will the law enforcement officer request that you do so, you run the risk of getting hurt, especially if you are pulled over on the highway. Data collected by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that more than half of moving violations in Virginia occurred on high-speed, high-volume roadways than on calmer residential and city roadways.
