New laws take effect in Virginia

July 1st marked the beginning of some new laws going into effect around the Commonwealth.

Officers can now pull you over and issue a ticket for excessive load exhaust as a primary offense.

Catalytic converter theft is now a class 6 felony.

Another law that went into effect bans law enforcement agencies from establishing ticket quotas.

Quotas also can no longer be used to evaluate officer performance.

Marijuana laws have changed as well with possession of more than 4 ounces but less than a pound in public now deemed a misdemeanor.
