(END SOT) A lot of viewers are upset about the


new fees tied to dangerous driving.



"Since when did it become the police's

job to help generate revenues for
government projects?" asked Jason Mann.
"It seems this new law of fining
Virginia citizens for traffic offenses
is a dangerous move both for the
citizens and the politicians. Citizens
may start seeing the police not as
protectors of the people but as
henchmen for the politicians."



But not everyone feels abused by the
new fees.



"If you are not breaking the law then
you will not be charged these new civil
fees. It's that simple," says Roger
Mullins.



Justin McLeod's story about the damage
done by a traffic-calming project in
Southwest Roanoke brought this
suggestion from a Vinton driver:



"If area residents must drive this
obstacle course, most of us twice
daily, the city could at least re-pave
the road. Drivers managed to suffer
through delays during the original
project so I feel that the minimal

period of time to re-pave would be well
worth it."



The punishment of Aaron Pierce didn't
fit the crime according to a viewer
from Christiansburg. Pierce was
sentenced to 30 days in jail for
running over and killing a Virginia
Tech freshman in 2005.



"My question is how can a judge not see
anything "wrong" with sentencing
someone who took another's life to 30
days in jail, but others who commit
crimes such as uttering or assault &
battery, sentenced to 3 years."



And some viewers said we showed a
little too much of the toils residents
of Goshen had to go through during the
recent water emergency.

warmer - topping out near 90!

JAY SU: Get ready - Low temperatures
tend to be muggy in July.

The New River Valley averages lows near
60, but the rest of us are closer to
the middle and upper 60s.

JAY SU: It's hard to get cold fronts to
cross Virginia in July, so you may not
expect much rain; but July is one of
our wettest months - in fact it is the
wettest month for Lynchburg and
Danville.

++++++++++

An average of 4.00 to 4.50 inches of
rain typically falls this month.
Tropical rains can really add to those
totals. The Caribbean and Gulf of
Mexico are the most likely breeding
ground for tropical systems in July.

The Roanoke Valley Astronomical Society
reports Venus is bright all month,
especially on July 14th. Venus will
shine next to Saturn around July 29th.
Also on the 29th, look for the Full

NBC Sports Kerr kept things rolling on the :00 way in. Here she rolls home the nice
birdie putt from about 35 feet for a
lead that she would not give up.

Lorena Ochoa was in the mix, but
stumbled down the stretch. Ochoa, the
world's top ranked player bogeyed 17
and finished at 3-under tied for 2nd
with Angela Park.

Kerr was steady, finishing with
a flurry of pars to win her very first
major, by two shots at 5-under.

Haley put the wraps on his inaugural
football camp here in the Valley this
weekend.

Now the linebacker is focused on
the Ravens training camp which begins
in just over 3 weeks. Baltimore
typically ranks at or near the top of
the NFL in just about every defensive
category, but fans in the Inner Harbor
are excited about the offense for a
change with the offseason signing of
running back Willis McGahee, who will
fill the void left by Jamal Lewis's
departure for Cleveland.
