Like every other state, Virginia has its fair share of wacky laws and city ordenaces. That’s especially true when it comes to driving-related laws, which can often seem to defy logic. Ticket School wants all Virginia drivers to be aware of the traffic laws that affect them and we definitely got a kick out of putting together this list of surprising laws and facts.
- It is illegal to use police radar detectors in Virginia
- In Prince William County, it is illegal to park on railroad tracks. Seems like a good idea.
- In March of 2010, Virginia state troopers administered 7,016 tickets in one weekend. 3,536 of those were for speeding.
- Going 11 miles per hour or more over the speed limit on some Virginia highways could land violators in jail for up to a year.
- In Virginia Beach, it’s illegal for a person to ride on the handlebars of a bicycle.
- It’s unlawful to drive by the same place within 30 minutes on Atlantic Avenue in Virginia Beach
- Also in Virginia Beach, even if you are not driving, you may get a DUI if you and the driver of the car you’re in are drunk.
