Virginia House Passes Mandatory Minimum Fine of $2,250 for DUI Offense

A new proposed Virginia DUI Law mandates that if you are convicted of DUI in Virginia, you soon could be paying a mandatory minimum fine of $2,250.

 

The Virginia House of Delegates recently passed HB161 and now it’s up to the Virginia  Senate to decide if the measure becomes Virginia law. In addition, the measure proposes fines of $ 2,500 to $3,000 for vehicle-related felonies.

 

The measure would repeal the controversial Civil Remedial Fees and replace it with fees paid by all abusive drivers in Virginia, not just Commonwealth residents. The bill enumerates offenses for which fees shall be paid. The bill also requires payment of liquidated damage fees on the basis of the accumulation of driver demerit points. The bill allows a court to suspend fee payment when a person is convicted of driving on a suspended license and the suspension was a result of failure to pay a fine, DMV fee or liquidated damage fee.
