Lawrenceville, Virginia Speed Traps
Speed limit changes abruptly from 55 to 45 and back again along a long stretch of this road. Police wait to ticket motorists who do not slow down in time. Have gotten 2 tickets past 2 years; one for going 11 mi/hr over 45, the other for going 14 mi/hr over the speed limit while passing a slower vehicle. If you get ticketed you will shortly begin receiving follow-up letters from a dozen lawyers offering to reduce your points for a fee – coincidence?
Trap is located as you leave town from traffic light just as you pass over creek across from a funeral home. Speed drops from 45, to 35, and then 25 as you enter towns jurisdiction and it’s the town cop you usually gets you.
