Culpeper, Virginia Speed Traps
For a 1/2 mile or so after Germana Hwy-Fredericksburg Road crosses Orange Rd the speed limit is “25 mph.” The rest of the road is 45 mph. Speed trap is apparently even accelerating up towards 45 mph while in the 25 mph segment
There is always a cop sitting there, to see if you stop at the Stop sign at Burgandine Rd.
Town Police sit on the side of the road in the pre-dawn hours running radar where the speed limit drops from 35 to 25 MPH. The police sit far enough off of Rte 522 that they can’t bee seen until it’s too late to slow down. They usually run radar two or three weekday mornings.
They sit on the corner and wait for you to turn right on red without making a complete stop. They sit back off the road so you can’t see them or they sit on another corner and you don’t see them but they see you and will get you.
They sit in the median of Rt. 3 just east of Rt. 29/15 in Culpeper so they can get you in both directions, From Culpeper to Orange County they sit in the median for both ways of travel or they sit in a hidden, unpaved road that you can see untill you reach the top of the hill and they got you, its mainly to get east bound traffic.
