All Your Base are Belong to Virginia?

In the wise words of Kanye West, "Virginia doesn't care about any people" (or something like that).

Continuing on their crusade to rape the middle class, the State of Virginia claimed yet another frustrated soul with their oh so constitutional "Pile-on" driving fees.

To those of you that are not familiar with these aforementioned "Pile-on" fees, here's a small snippet from the liberal bastion "The Washington Post":

The fees, which range from $750 to $3,000, were passed by the General Assembly in the spring as part of a package aimed at funding scores of transportation projects. Backers said the fees would both raise money and improve highway safety by targeting the state's worst drivers -- those guilty of severe traffic offenses such as DUI, reckless driving and driving on a suspended license.
Best part about this newest case though? The woman that was fined a $1,050 civil fee on top of a judge-imposed $100 fine and court costs for "reckless driving" for going 57 mph in a 35 zone. Why was she going so fast?

Oh yea, she was GOING INTO LABOR!

Well, to be fair, she thought she was going into labor, but by the sounds of it, if she was the only person available to get her ass to the hospital, I don't think she could (or should for that matter) take any chances.

Thank God we have such diligent cops out there with nothing better to do then pull over Pregnant ladies going through labor pains... Virginia must be the safest state in the union...
