Fredericksburg, Virginia Speed Traps
There is a short 25 mph residential zone that quickly turns into a 40 mph zone. The sheriffs office commonly sets up right before the 40 mph sign to catch motorist accelerating up to the 40 mph speed limit as they near the end of the residential area. Motorist face fines for speeding, failure to obey traffic signs and/or speeding in residence zone.
This section of Route 3 has many hidden cut throughs between the East & West lanes. County sheriffs absolutely love to tuck themselves into one of these cut throughs and nab early morning commuters between the hours of 4-7AM. This is especially true heading East as you round the last curve & straightaway before the Andora/Route 3 light. Sheriffs sit there regularly during the work week and even sit there on weekends, usually Saturday mornings. They sit in such a way that by the time you see them, they already have you nailed.
When the evening commuters start cutting through the Maple Grove subdivision on their way to Salem Church Road, there is often a car tucked down the hill on Rick Court to make sure that all the cars stop at the 2 stop signs he can see from there.
Also, every so often on the other end of Blake, by the intersection of Norriss a Glazebrook, there is a car who will catch drivers going the wrong way on the 60 feet of Norris Drive that is a one way street.
City cops wait just past the ramp getting commuters going to Northern Virginia. Usually at night.
During school start and stop times the school zone lights flash to warn drivers that the speed limit is 25mph. Sheriff deputies are often ticketing in the church parking lot across from the school or sometimes they are standing in the median with the radar gun aimed at everyone traveling northbound.
