Arlington, Virginia Speed Traps
Between Washington & Wilson the police are on the right hand side going south on North George Mason before the overpass over Rte66.
Arlington and Virginia State Police park at the end of the ramp, on the left side, behind trees/shrubs. I see them frequently during the evening rush hour, although they could be there at other times as well. They must be citing drivers for excess speed on the exit ramp. It’s a long, straight, uphill ramp and it is easy to maintain a good percentage of the exiting highway speed, and I see a lot of cars pulled over by the police.
Right after you drive under Glebe Road, a trap is on the right on the ramp. There’s a tree and bushes, but if u turn your head, you should see a car there. Usually during non-rush hours on weekdays. The road goes downhill under the bridge, so the speed is likely to increase. The posted limit is 45 mph. I was cited for 49 mph
at the base of the hill right by the entrance to Long Branch Nature Center.
The U.S. Pentagon Police will often sit in the dark at the end of Boundary Channel drive, along the many connector roads, in LBJ Grove Park, and hidden in the massive parking lots of the reservation waiting for speeders. They are primarily looking for drunk drivers and will often follow you to pace you and gather driving behavior for probable cause to stop you. They do have one unmarked radar car with dark tinted windows. "Watch out" for that car specifically at night! They have been known to be ruthless at catching drunk drivers.
