State Highway 522 near Through Berkeley Springs

Berkeley Springs, West VirginiaJun 26, 20071 Comments

Beware tourists and visitors to Berkeley Springs, WV. Route 522 through town is well known as a speed trap, especially to those with out of state plates. (It was even written about in the town paper) There is one of those electric readouts as you enter the town from the north, letting you know exactly what your speed is. Just north of the town on Rt. 522 has a 50MPH speed limit; you will decrease to 25mph in some places along 522 in town.
In an unrelated fact, there have been many complaints by weekend visitors to Berkeley, getting parking tickets at expired meters; so much so that the town merchants have asked the town council to ask the town police to be less aggressive in their giving out parking tickets.

I do believe the speed limit on Rt. 522 going south from Maryland on the north side of berkeley Springs is 55 MPH and it's goes from 55 to 40 to 25 in about 100 yards. the 40 MPH sign is alittle north of the moose lodge. The 25 MPH sign is at the Post Office. I think it is crazy for a town that relies on the tourists for a big portion of business revenue would be so aggressive.
