Virginia Beach is a summer vacation hot spot for people who live up and down the East Coast and in the Midwest. Families who come to the oceanfront are sure to have a great time, unless they are charged with speeding, reckless driving, or driving under the influence. It’s easy to accidentally break the rules in an unfamiliar area but the ramifications for that rule breaking can be tough. Some potential penalties include:
- Revocation of privilege to drive in the commonwealth of Virginia
- License suspension or revocation in your home state based on the interstate compact
- Fines of up to $2,500 (for a first time offense)
- Jail time
