I-68 east of city

Morgantown, West VirginiaJul 19, 20020 Comments

The WV state troopers usually are set up at the bottom of a long downgrade that’s zoned for 70 mph. I emphasize "long" because (1) it IS long, and (2) it’s extremely easy to get well over the limit by the time you get to the bottom. It’s also a racket: the trooper will write you up for doing 79, and if you’re not local, you have to call a Morgantown number to acknowledge receipt of the ticket, etc. That call goes into an automated menu, for which one of the pre-programmed choices is exactly the violation for which you were cited. In other words, it’s a classic revenue machine intended to hit the non-locals for about $150 a pop.
