Henderson, North Carolina Speed Traps
You will see city cops and sometime HP sitting in the median,
Officer sits in a yellow state highway service pickup truck on overpass and "shoots" traffic. A group of state police marked and unmarked cars sit on Interstate on ramp waiting for their call to swoop down on the unsuspecting motorist. I observed this in the Northbound lanes of I-85 while heading to Durham on Sunday Labor day weekend and again on Monday when returning to Virginia from Durham. The trap was north of the Rest Area and had moved one exit north from it’s location on Sunday. Very clever using the state highway truck apparently "inspecting" the overpass with his yellow work light flashing and all as the radar location. We saw 7 State police cars at this "Fishing hole", as the police call it and they were all busy ticketing the unsuspecting motorists.
State Trooper’s car is usually parked in median around curve past Vance Co. line.
Numerous Sheriff/HP cars on the overpass of Poplar Creek Rd (Ex209) and also in the median. Vance-Granville College is off this exit and seems their "cop school" teaches ticket giving in this area.
