Play associated audio

By Elliott Francis

A report about an unusually large traffic fine in Virginia has now been retracted. The Virginia State Police now say they DID NOT issue a $1,000 ticket during an HOV crackdown, as previously reported.

Police say they issued the citation to a motorist who had violated HOV restrictions for a forth time. The ticket was issued during a recent crackdown on carpool lanes in northern Virginia.

State police now say the only tickets issued that day included 25 first-time HOV violations and a pair of fines for second violations. The fine for the first offense is $125 and $250 for the second.
