The Virginia Motor Vehicle Code – Your Guide to Motor Vehicle Safety

Vehicle accidents can cause serious injuries and even death. It is the major reasons why Virginia has a Motor Vehicle Code.

Who is protected by the Motor Vehicle Code?

Motor vehicles, in Virginia, include automobiles, trucks, motorcycles and scooters. The motor vehicle code protects other motor vehicle drivers and bicyclists and pedestrians.

Purpose

The Virginia Motor Vehicle helps prevent accidents by making sure:

  • Drivers are properly trained before they get their license.
  • Drivers don’t drive because their license is suspended.
  • Vehicles are properly titled and inspected
  • Drivers have the correct insurance
  • Drivers comply with all traffic rules
  • Vehicle dealers provide safe cars.

Whenever there is accident, one of the first things a trained motor vehicle lawyer will do is consult the Virginia Motor Vehicle Code to see if the parties (driver, owner, dealer, etc.) responsible for the accident complied with the state motor vehicle laws. A failure to comply with the laws is a good starting point for showing that the party was negligent.
