Speed Traps in Richmond, Virginia

US Highway 1 & 301 near US Highway 1 & 301   Richmond, Virginia

Refrain from driving Jefferson Davis Highway (US 1 & 301) unless you live or visiting a relative located near this highway. People typically drive WAY below the speed limit on JDH. However, police in the City of Richmond and Chesterfield County constantly pull people over for minor driving infractions.

Always be on the lookout in the city portion, especially near Bellmeade. In Chesterfield County, the following are Hot Spots: DuPont (Cogbill & Jeff Davis), Falling Creek (7-11 in the median strip), Route 144 & JDH, Willis Road, Shooters Billiard's, underpass at VA 288 expressway and several other locations.

The speed limit is 25 from Hull Street to Maury Street, 35 from Maury Street to Harwood/Hopkins Road, 40 from Harwood/Hopkins to city border and 45 in the majority of Chesterfield County. There is one stretch of 55 beyond the Chester area.

For the police, this is really the only way they have to help cut crime along this business corridor that runs over 20 miles long. This is a high crime corridor that even features a prostitution-free zone at Bells Road (VA 161) and JDH, and drug problems and robberies.

This is NOT speedtrap, but I felt it should be addressed to all of towners! The police along this stretch of highway are only doing their job and trying to restore 1/301 a major business corridor that is safe. In most cases, the police are friendly unless you become hostile!

Chippenham Parkway near Powhite Parkway   Richmond, Virginia

This trap is a bear. Smokey usually has his cruiser in a median facing southbound Chippenham Parkway (150). This trap is right after the speed increases from 45 to 55. This is located right at the Route 76 South Junction.
