State Highway Route 7 at Route 603

Berryville, VirginiaOct 01, 20010 Comments

On a two lane divided highway, 3/10ths of a mile from the top of a blind hill. Problable point of intercept is 100 feet from the top of the hill to within 300 feet of the position of the sheriffs car. From the top of the hill the stationary sheriff’s car appears to be stopped in the fast travel lane at the bottom of the hill. Speed limit here is 55 on a road that is normally travelled at higher rates of speed. This is a classic "trap" scenario. The radar unit used is a Kustom Golden Eagle SR (1,800′ range with a 15 degree fan, mounted in the back window of the Deputy’s car. He parks in the turn lane for Route 603. (The Sheriff’s office claims the range is unlimited, indicating either a ploy to put off the requester or lack of knowledge of the units capability)
