Louisa, Virginia Speed Traps
Northbound traffic moves downhill for 1/2 mile or more; posted speed limit is 55 mph. Officers sit at the base of the hill, hidden from view on the Southbound shoulder. They’re not visible before you crest the final downhill grade. Take your eyes of the speedometer on the down hill grade and you’ll easily exceed 55 mph. there is NO grace for out of state drivers. I lived in VA for nearly 20 years and never was pulled over. Now that I have Maryland tags, I was ticketed w/out discussion.
County Police sit at the bottom of valley 2 miles North of Boswell Tavern 3 miles South of Gordensville clocking traffic in both directions. Day and evenings
Four lane road converts to two lane road past Lowes, 45mph posted several times. Radar enforcement is constant.
Anyone pulling a trailer from any direction through the Town of Louisa – make sure it is completely legal (inspection, tags, working lights, etc.). There is a "trailer cop" who sits and waits for anyone pulling a trailer. Obey all traffic laws and watch your speed!
As you enter the town of Louisa on US 22&33 from the West, the speed limit drops from 35 to 25 with no warning. As you travel East on US 22&33 the signs are not clear where the speed limit goes back up to 35. There seams to be no rhyme or reason as to what time of day this is enforced.
