Charlottesville Judge Upholds Abusive Driving Fees

October 5, 2007

A General District Court judge in Charlottesville has upheld Virginia's abusive driver fees.

The ruling comes after a motion filed by attorneys for The Rutherford Institute on behalf of a driver who was charged with reckless driving for exceeding the posted speed limit by more than 20 miles per hour while driving within the city of Charlottesville.

The institute says that attorneys will be appealing the decision. It's the latest in legal battles taking place across the state concerning the new abusive driver fees.
