Ray D. Pethtel, Virginia Tech's University Transportation Fellow and associate director of the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, has issued a white paper on Virginia's controversial abusive driver fees imposed through legislation passed during last year's General Assembly session and signed into law by Governor Tim Kaine.

The white paper, explores and compares penalties in other states for similar convictions and places Virginia’s fees within a national context.
