The Sussex County Sheriff’s Office uses this stretch of Interstate 95 as a huge cash cow. During any time of the day, there are at least two (but as many as six) marked & unmarked sheriff’s patrol cars in this area. They use radar and lidar and there are plenty of places to hide (bushes, shoulder, etc.) while they wait for their prey to approach. State troopers also lurk in the area, but not as frequently. The “trap” area goes from just north of Emporia to just above the Stony Creek exit.

The posted limit is 70 mph, but traffic flow can easily top 80 to 85 mph. Also know that 81 mph or more in Virginia CAN be charged as reckless driving – a misdemeanor offense that requires a court appearance. Be careful out there!!
