Fines for traffic violations on the rise in Chesterfield

Posted by Iva Radman – email

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - Drivers in Chesterfield County could soon be shelling out more for certain traffic violations.

The Board of Supervisors could take action Wednesday after a public hearing, increasing fees from $250 to$ 350 for DUIs, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

The General Assembly passed a law allowing the tougher fines earlier this year.

The extra money will help with the cost of responding to those incidents.
