WASHINGTON COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Despite the emptiness of the roads following Gov. Ralph Northam’s stay-at-home order, Virginia State Police (VSP) warns motorists that speeding is still illegal.
“We appreciate everyone complying with Governor Northam’s #COVID19 “Stay at Home” directive,” VSP wrote on Facebook on Friday, April 3. “But, open roadways are not a free pass to speed.”
VSP also included a picture of a citation issued to a driver for going 102 miles per hour in a 70 mile per hour zone on I-81 in Washington County. That driver now faces a reckless driving charge, according to VSP.
“We’re still out there doing our job. We ask you to do yours,” VSP wrote.
