Hampton, Virginia Speed Traps
Speed limit going south on King Street changes from 35 to 30 at overpass. Police cruiser sits in field on right hidden by overpass and trees. Drivers who are doing 6 miles an hour over speed limit get nailed for going over 10 mph over and hefty ticket if they inadvertently don’t notice new sign. This spot is frequently used by Hampton traffic officers as it generates max revenue for little effort. Also 30 mph speed limit on this part of King Street makes no sense.
Downtown Hampton @ the base of the bridge to Armstead Rd any time during the daylight hours there is a officer on the road.
Right at the ramp to merge on/off I-664 to/from 64 E & W is a emergency vehicle access point (break in the concrete divider) and troopers like to sit there and clock (happens for both directions). They’re not there everyday I don’t think, but it’s a common spot.
Troopers like to sit in the break of the concrete barrier occasionally and clock (either direction) near the Big Bethel Road I-64 Overpass. It’s 60 MPH there and drops to 55 right after (if traveling eastbound) and is 55 then 60 (if traveling westbound).
A marked police car sits at the apartment entrance before the 7/11. When you come over the top of the interstate bridge it is already too late. There is no regular time that they work this trap. Just when they want to make their quota quickly. The spped limit is 35. Most people come over the bridge at 50. I have seen the radar trap there many times. One time I saw a license checkpoint at this same location.
