Appomattox, Virginia Speed Traps
i was ticketed in appomattox where 460 slows down to 45 for about 400 yards for the stoplight by the plaza. The officer was sitting in the parking lot next to the speed limit sign. I accelerated through the sign and he told me i was clocked going 53 in a 45. I was told the law is only for after the sign (different where i am from), and I will say I have never spent a penny in appomatox after that and never will. I later found out that everyone from lynchburg to richmond knows the police there are petty and ridiculous and that is the city’s main source of income. be careful!
Ok, its not that the speeds are unrealistic, but people still get pulled over often on this route. Mostly it is during the day time, especially on Sundays. I got pulled over on this route along with 3 of my friends. Even if you are going just 5 MPH over the 55 MPH speed limit, they will pull you over. And this pretty much goes for all of 460 between Farmville and Lynchburg. one time i counted 7 state troupers while driving this route. They have grey patrol cars, and always use moving radar.
