"Abusive Driver" Fees Could Become Political Issue

According to an article in today's Washington Post, an online petition against Virginia's steep new "abusive driver" fees neared 100,000 signatures Monday, accelerating lawmakers' calls for the General Assembly to rescind them before voters go to the polls Nov. 6.

Pointing up the political power of the issue, at one point Monday more than 1,000 people an hour were signing the petition demanding that lawmakers repeal the fees -- some of which can top $1,000 -- or risk being voted out of office.
