This Court will hear an appeal concerning the Constitutionality of Virginia’s act that required all interstate passenger motor vehicle carriers to be separated without discrimination. white and colored Motor bus passengers must be separated so that people of differing races do not share the same seats. The carrier may not violate the separation requirement. Drivers or any other responsible person are required to adjust or reduce the amount of space allocated to each race. Passengers may also be asked to move their seats in order to conform to this allocation. The operator’s failure to enforce the provisions is made a misdemeanor.
