Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • A traffic infraction, while not “criminal in nature,” Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-8, is a violation of law punishable as provided in Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-113, which is neither a felony nor a misdemeanor, Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-100. As such, traffic infractions are punishable by a fine of not more than that provided for a class 4 misdemeanor under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-11. Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-113. Additionally, under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-937, for purposes of arrest, traffic infractions shall be treated as misdemeanors. Thus, for certain purposes, traffic infractions are treated like criminal offenses and other charges and nothing precludes one being a lesser-included offense of another.
