US Highway 460 near State Route 40 Waverly, Virginia
Waverly is a 'town' in VA - located inside of Sussex County. Both the town cops and county deputies can issue tickets for almost any violation. State troopers patrol the area sometimes as well. The speed limit drops from 55 to 45 and then to 35.
To be fair, there are plenty of signs and they warn all drivers that "speed is checked electronically" when you enter the town limits. Perhaps these signs went up after AAA declared Waverly a speed trap; I don't know. The signs were not there several years ago, however.
We passed through there twice within 18 hours and there was an unmarked black Crown Vic stopped behind cars both times. It had a radar unit, of course, and I reckon the officer was very busy all day. Route 460 is a handy way for many people to get to VA Beach (to avoid the I-64 rat race) and these small towns take advantage of the "easy pickings" provided to them. Slow down in Waverly!
