Screw the Whiney Virginia Drivers sign now

To: Elected Officials in the Commonwealth of Virginia

We, the non-citizens of Virginia, love the outrageous traffic fines imposed as "civil remedial fees" in House Bill 3202 for the following reasons:

1. The fines inflict a punishment on drivers that is disproportionate to the degree of the offense they committed. Which rocks! I love listening to people whine about this.
2. The fines are mandatory, and judges are given no discretion in sentencing, but who really cares? Nobody whines about mandatory minimums until it affects them. Babies!
3. The language of the bill states that the purpose is to "generate revenue" and hence the fines have nothing to do with traffic safety. Again, who cares. If people don't drive like assholes they won't get fined.
4. The bill's sponsor, Del. David Albo (R- 42nd District) is a partner in a law firm that specializes in traffic court cases and stands to benefit personally from this legislation. Sweet! I want in on some of that action.
5. The fines in the bill apply ONLY to Virginia residents, hence unfairly creating different penalties for the same traffic offense based solely on residency. Probably the best part of the bill, as I don't have a VA license.
6. In order to generate additional revenue, points for driving offenses remain on the offender's license for up to 11 years. This will unnecessarily increase the offender's insurance rates for a time frame that is incongruent with the degree of the offense. Again, whiney! Anyone who doesn't drive like a dick should have nothing to worry about.

We, the undersigned, not only demand the "civil remedial fees" not be repealed, but also that they be increased tenfold. We will not vote for any state Delegate or State Senator who votes to repeal this bill, or for any Delegate or Senator who takes action to repeal the sections of House Bill 3202 that inflict these exorbitant penalties, nor would we vote for any of these people if we were even VA state residents. And yes, you're a state. Stop trying to fool yourself with that whole commonwealth deal. Are they the Virginia Commonwealth Police? No, they're the Virginia STATE Police. I rest my case.
