The Virginia Vehicle Code covers motor vehicle laws including titling and registering vehicles, driver’s licenses, motor vehicle deals, and penalties for violating the laws. The Code also includes a chapter on Virginia Traffic Laws which can be helpful if you are issued a traffic violation. Traffic regulations covered include topics such as following too closely, right of way, traffic lights, u-turns and passing.
Virginia DUI law refers to those driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher. You can still be arrested for driving under the influence if your BAC is beneath the legal limit if drugs or alcohol have impaired your driving. You cannot refuse a breathalyzer test if you are pulled over for probable cause. Consequences for driving under the influence result in license revocation for a year and a fine of at least $250.
