Crashes on HOT lanes under construction on the Capital Beltway. Requires that when there is a vehicle crash on HOT lanes under construction on the Capital Beltway and the vehicles involved in the crash can be moved and there are no apparent bodily injuries, the drivers must move their vehicles to the nearest designated pull-off area. Failure to do so is punishable by a civil penalty of $100, to be paid into the Highway Maintenance and Operating Fund. VDOT is required to post the bill's requirements on signs along the Capital Beltway in Virginia where HOT lanes are under construction. The bill's provisions expire when HOT lane on the Capital Beltway in Virginia is completed and the Virginia Department of Transportation accepts the project. Read the Bill »
