Virginia residents are required by law to either provide the DMV with proof of insurance or pay the DMV an uninsured motorist fee. The fee does not provide insurance; it only allows for registration and operation of the vehicle.
Virginia law requires the driver of a vehicle and the front seat passengers to use lap belts and shoulder harnesses. However, the City of Fairfax Police Department recommends all passengers in a vehicle be restrained with lap belts and shoulder harnesses, and passengers younger than age 12 be properly restrained in the rear seat of the vehicle. Children age 4 and younger must be in an approved child safety seat.Radar Detectors
It is illegal to use radar detection devices in Virginia. However, a detector may be in a vehicle if the device has no power source and no one in the vehicle can access it.
