Parking Violation Fees and Common Sense
Parking violations detract from our neighborhoods’ quality of life. Levying minimal fees that did not even cover the cost of issuing them made little sense and I am pleased that the Board of Supervisors has made a significant adjustment—especially during tough economic times when we need new sources of revenue to reduce the tax burden on our homeowners.
The fine for illegal commercial vehicles parked on residential streets has been increased from $25 to $100 per occurrence. Additionally, the Board has established a license tax for out-of-state vehicles that are required to display a Virginia license plate. This annual $100 tax is higher than the cost of the DMV registration fee. It is designed to encourage individuals who have neglected to register their vehicle in Virginia to do so.
