Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-943 allows for a bifurcated trial for traffic offenses and provides, in pertinent part, that when any person is found guilty of a traffic offense, the court or jury trying the case may consider the prior traffic record of the defendant before imposing sentence as provided by law.
  • Evidence of prior driving under the influence (DUI) convictions and evidence of prior traffic records are not the same. Traffic records as contemplated by Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-943 contain prior suspensions and revocations of a driver’s license and prior convictions of moving traffic violations, including, but not limited to, DUI convictions. Thus, while evidence of a prior DUI conviction may be a part of a traffic record, such evidence does not necessarily constitute the traffic record for purposes of the application of Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-943.  .
