You, as a motorist, should know that really bad things happen when you drive too fast in Virginia. The commonwealth takes speeding more seriously than just about anywhere else in America, and penalties are heavy for those with a need for speed. But a new bill in the Virginia General Assembly could make things a bit…
You might be surprised what happens if you get stopped for speeding in Virginia. Even if you don't live here, you may find yourself passing through for business or vacation. Educate yourself in advance.
If there's one thing I hope you learn from reading Jalopnik, it's that you shouldn't speed in Virginia because the state treats excessive speed as a serious criminal offense instead of a traffic citation. Washington Nationals player Jayson Werth may soon learn that the hard way.
There's nothing in the world I love more than driving fast. That's why this TV commercial from New Zealand illustrates my worst nightmare.

SPEED can't catch a brake (get it?) lately. First, they lost the rights to F1 coverage in the US. Then it was announced they'd be rebranded as Fox Sports 1 and lose their motorsports focus. Today, a naked man broke into the cable channel's headquarters and trashed the place. Rough.
Well, it was fun while it lasted. As we have known for some time, the motorsports-only SPEED network is on the way out so parent company Fox can replace it with a general sports network that they hope will compete with ESPN. Now we know that network's name: Fox Sports 1.
Just when you thought reality TV couldn't get any dumber, SPEED decided that it would be a good idea to cast a younger, thinner version of Larry the Cable Guy to host a drag racing show.
Last week, we received word that SPEED had lost the rights to Formula One to NBC after having the series on the network for 17 years. Parent company FOX said that SPEED made a "fiscally responsible" bid to keep the series for 2013 and beyond. But today FOX announced they extended their NASCAR coverage for eight more…
Earlier today, we learned the SPEED will be losing coverage of Formula One next year after 17 straight years of bringing the races to America.
What would the world be like if SPEED, the all-motorsports channel, were converted into another all-general sports network. I haven't even included a question mark on that sentence, because we all know the answer: It would be a little more lame.
Another day. Another Barrett-Jackson controversy involving a president. This weekend the famous classic car auction helped raise $950,000 for a Marine veteran's project for wounded warriors. The only problem? The money isn't going to the highly-regarded charity, the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).
From Matt Farah, the now-former co-host of — "The Car Show" — a now-deceased Speed TV show seen by countless dozens of Americans:
Questionable programming decisions have made Speed the television network equivalent of bacon-flavored tampons. So it's news when they make a great choice like broadcasting the Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercars race on October 8th.
There's been a massive shake-up at SPEED TV's automotive variety program The Car Show with former NBA great and current TV not-so-great John Salley axed from the show, along with 30 minutes of the formerly hour-long program, as Jalopnik exclusively learned. Details below.
A competitor in this year's Bullrun Rally caused a five-car crash when an Audi R8 apparently lost control near Orlando, Florida on the multi-state, high-speed rally from Las Vegas to Miami. The driver was arrested and Ice-T was apparently there. UPDATE.
