Warwick BLVD, in the Hilton area. (Warwick & Main)

Newport News, VirginiaMar 25, 20030 Comments

When you approach Hilton Village (Warwick Blvd and Main St.), from either direction on Warwick Blvd, during the course of about 1.5 miles, the speed goes from 45, to 35, and then to 25. Many cars go from 45-55, and do not slow down. Make sure you go the posed limit, because if you are seen speeding in the 35 zone by an officer, chances are very good that the officer will silently follow you into hilton, where the speed is 25, and the ticket will be more severe. Despite this, it seems that there is no enforcement during the times of day when it’s needed most, which is when the shipyard lets out. The shipyard drivers are mostly the ones who drive through Hilton doing 45 or 50, yet there never seems to be enforcement during these times of the day. The speedlimit could safely be 35 there, however it was probably set lower to safeguard the 2 or 3 daily visitors to the "historic" area. Very *friendly* (eager to write tickets) officer patrolling in hilton, close to the churches, somtimes by Motorcycle, other times in unmarked crown vick.
