Abusive driver civil remedial fees. Provides that abusive driver civil remedial fees shall be assessed on any person who operates a motor vehicle on the highways of Virginia, whether licensed to operate a motor vehicle in Virginia or not, whether a resident of Virginia or not, as opposed to the current law, which limits application to Virginia residents. The bill also provides that a civil remedial fee will not be imposed for driving on a suspended license if the suspension or revocation was based solely upon a person's failure to pay a court fine, court cost, or civil remedial fee. The bill also limits application of the fees upon the commission of unnamed traffic misdemeanors to Class 1 and Class 2 misdemeanors. The bill also provides that no fee is to be imposed for reckless driving when the violation was as a result of traveling (a) less than 80 miles per hour in a 55 mile-per-hour zone or (b) less than 90 miles per hour in a 65 mile-per-hour zone.
