That's not crazy at all, most states have a reckless driving statute, 30+ over will get you arrested here in MA, for example.

Over 80 (no matter the speed limit) is Reckless Driving in Virginia, which is a criminal offense.

The Virginia DMV is the farking worst when it comes to record keeping.

NSCSB: I had an unpaid ticket which I cleared up (penalties and all) 6 months before I moved to Alabama. My roommate made a point of telling me to hang on to the receipt, and for this piece of advice, I'll be eternally grateful.

Apply for my AL license, a week later I get a letter saying I have an unpaid ticket in VA. Had to fax my receipt to VA and wait for them to send a letter saying I was clear. Four years later, I go to reinstate my expiring license...I'll give you three guesses as to what happened, and the first two don't count. At least they had updated their records the THIRD time.

Agreed. I'm not a fast driver and I haven't received a speeding ticket in 28 years, but I was driving down I-81 last weekend and several times I realized, as I was going downgrade, that I was over 80. Luckily, I didn't see a state trooper between Fairfax and Blacksburg.

When I lived there (80's and 90's) 15 over was an automatic reckless, but if you weren't actually driving recklessly, and you were cool to the cop, he'd write you for 14. Nowadays, I'm sure it's all about the revenue.

Nooooo, they're going to keep popping out-of-state drivers with a reckless charge for going 82 in a 70, scaring them into paying for local attorneys to go to the county kangaroo court. Then these drivers are going to be relieved when they're fined several hundred dollars for Defective Equipment, Improper Driving or whatever, because they avoided the criminal conviction.

It's perfect, really, because not only does the state get its money from out-of-staters, but the local economy gets some money dumped in it by way of attorney fees.

This, speeding isn't the problem,  it's differences in speed - and direction sometimes if you want to get pedantic.  Being the thing moving at 55 when everyone else is moving 90 is a danger to themselves and everyone else.

Stingray Z51:
Sure enough, with about 2800 rpm, careful modulation, and earlier hook-up, I'm better than a tenth quicker, with my best two-way average working out to 3.9 seconds to 60 mph and 12.2 at 117.3 mph in the quarter.

In comparison, the 354-pound-lighter ZL1 coupe with a six-speed manual sprinted to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and finished the quarter mile in 12.1 seconds at 117.4 mph.

My dad got a bum ticket once  in Alabama (he wasn't speeding, a similar colored car had just blown past us doing at least 95 and the cop pulled over the wrong car). He drove back over to Tuscaloosa to contest it and got off because the arresting officer either didn't show or didn't recognize him as the person he'd pulled over.

Dad also once got a speeding ticket on the Natchez Trace... which is federally protected. So the ticket itself read "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. [DAD]". That was pretty funny.

Sounds eerily familiar.  Mine liked to run the tolls.  Racked up 4 in a month and since I was the primary registered owner, they sent the citation to me...except I never received it.  Instead, I get a letter telling me my license will be suspended on such-a-such date if I don't pay this citation.  She finally fessed up and tells me she was trying to take care of if without my knowledge.  Says it will cost about $150.  I look at the paperwork and call the toll authority.  They told me to send a $25 money order to the toll authority by the end of the week and it will be taken care of.  And that's exactly what I did and they took care of it.  The toll authority charges a $25 fine for running your 4th toll in a 30 day window.  Failure to pay the fine and they send it to the local county Sheriff that issues a citation on their behalf and add in the toll fine.  Pay the toll authority the fine, they cancel the citation.  Pretty simple.  Hence, why she's an ex.
