Fines to Increase for Speeding on Rosedown Drive

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors are expected to approve on Tuesday increased fines for speeding on one south Reston street.

Under the county’s Residential Traffic Administration Program (RTAP), homeowners can petition their district supervisor to point out a traffic safety issue. The supervisor can then take the request to the Virginia Department of Transportation, which then performs an engineering review to see if the issue is justified.

In this case, the issue is speeding on Rosedown Drive between Bedfordshire Circle and Glade Drive.

The board is expected to approve the installation of “$200 Additional Fine for Speeding” signs on the following road:

The speed limit on Rosedown is 25 miles per hour.

Section 46.2-878.2 of the Code of Virginia permits a maximum fine of $200, in addition to other penalties provided by law, to be levied on persons exceeding the speed limit on appropriately designated residential roadways.

The cost of the additional signs is $600, which is paid for out of the VDOT secondary road construction budget.
