Several Richmond Hotspots
Observed patrol vehicles: 1 unmarked Black Chevy Yukon w/ side light, 1 White unmarked Chevy Yukon w/ side light, other marked patrol vehicles.
Richmond is a small town with several good hiding spots for cops and speed limits that “feel” 5-10 MPH under what they should be (a 25 in Richmond might be a 30 or 35 in any other city). It’s also a major through way for anyone living east of there to access I-295. Observe the limits carefully. I’ve seen drivers pulled over for failing to signal, slight speeding, etc. It’s not Woodworth Luisiana, yet, but they might get there.
(1) Hiding on 197, waiting to catch drivers as they come off the rotary bridge near Old Ferry Road- 30MPH on the bridge, 40MPH on the road.
(2) At the intersection of 24 and 197, a gravel patch facing West to catch drivers coming down the 25MPH residential zone and before they get to the 40MPH 197 area.
(3) At the bottom of the 25MPH residential zone near the Water facility, just before 24 and 197 split again. They face up the hill to catch anyone coming down too quickly.
(4) 197 West next to the Cotton Cemetary, but before the Richmond Public Library. Speed limit drops from 40MPH to 30MPH and the cop sits in the gravel turnaround at the bottom of the hill to catch drivers from both directions.
The unmarked SUV patrol vehicles are a relatively new addition and have worked to catch many speeders since they were introduced just by following drivers.
