George Washington Way near Van Giesen Street
Speed Limit on George Washington Way is 35 MPH and it is a main thoroughfare through Richland. When coming up GW Way you will encounter a school zone which is activated by a small flashing lightng which prompts you to slow to 20 MPH. This occurs at various times of the day. You may see it and you may not, due to the heavy traffic at various intervals during the day. The police seem to like this area because no one does 20 MPH, and they have a free pick on who should get a ticket for speeding in a school zone. This apparently increases the amount of the fine too. It appears to be a very easy place to get caught speeding, especially if you are not from Richland. I do not advocate speeding in any school zone, however, this particular one seems to be a major revenue getter and trap.
