Virginia Fees For "Abusive Drivers" Go Into Effect, and Cause Lawsuits and Uproar

Virginia set into law driver fines that charge "abusive drivers" up to thousands of dollars per violation.

The law is getting hit left and right with lawsuits. But I think a better place to start this debate is exactly what Virginia thinks is "abusive." Any citizen could support laws against nightmare repeat DUI's. But this law is so broad. E.g.,Reckless driving causes a $1,050 fee, but reckless driving is caused only by driving more than 20 MPH over the limit.
