The compromise transportation plan’s provisions to fine Virginia drivers exorbitant sums if they’re convicted of reckless driving might be something worthy of consideration. That consideration becomes very difficult when you consider that out-of-state drivers won’t be subjected to these fines, which raises equal protection concerns under the Fourteenth Amendment.
But consider this:
If an illegal alien, driving without a license is convicted of reckless driving, will they be subjected to these penalties? Nope. Not only is the maximum fine for them ($1,500) lower than it would be for a citizen being cited for driving on a suspended license ($2,500), but because they don’t have a Virginia driver’s license, they’re exempt from the penalties.
It’s official. Our government treats illegal aliens better than it does it’s own citizens.
