North Quaker Ln. between King Street and the I395 North ramp

Alexandria, VirginiaMay 17, 20101 Comments

Alexandria police officers sit near shrubery on the grounds of Convergence Church between Oakcrest Dr. and Crestwood Dr.
Because the median strip is the boundary between Alexandria and Arlington, the Arlington County police sit among commuter cars in the south bound lanes across from Wachovia bank.

Both traps are most frequently observed betweeen the end and beginning of the month. Interestingly, the speed limit on north-bound Quaker Ln. is 25 m.p.h and the speed limit on the south-bound lanes is 30 m.p.h.

This speed trap is particularly bad because the police hide behind a church sign and pop out with a radar gun. Speed limit is 25mph on a 4 lane thoroughfare. If you actually go 25 you are impeding traffic trying to merge onto 395. If it were about safety they would not hide. One side of the street is Arlington and the speed trap side is Alexandria, this ensuring that many tickets will be issued to out of towners. Please Alexandria, use your hard working policemen for fighting crime, not raising revenue.
