NOVA Car Club Brings NOVA Driving Style to Augusta County- Are Summoned and Cars Towed
Sports cars take reckless Sunday drive
Summonses issued to sports car drivers after complaints
Many Sunday drivers may have seen something out of the norm on their morning jaunt as a gaggle of sports cars raced down Va. 262.
According to Augusta County Sheriff’s Office, 15 to 20 sports cars were seen driving recklessly at 10:40 a.m. Sunday morning and it took four jurisdictions to work collectively to stop them.
After receiving multiple calls Sunday morning, Augusta County deputy Trevor Ross said law enforcement found that the cars were part of a Northern Virginia car club. The cars, he said, included BMWs, Lexuses, Nissans and “an exotic one or two.”
“They were going for some sort of drive,” Ross said, much like motorcycle clubs do. “They did part of it yesterday and stayed in Harrisonburg.”
Ross said the group was speeding, cutting other drivers off and passing over double yellow lines from Va. 262 then traveling west on U.S. 250 through Churchville.
Virginia Conservation Police, Highland County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police stopped 15 vehicles at the Headwaters Post Office in Highland County, a release said.
More than 20 summonses were issued to 15 drivers whose cars were also towed.
The drivers have been summoned to Highland and Augusta counties, where, Ross said, they could face high fines, suspended licenses or the possibility of jail time.
