Manassas Park, Virginia Speed Traps
Polk Drive is a one-way street moving traffic north bound from Cabbel Drive, past Coutney Drive, past Kibry Street, emptying out to Manassas Drive.
By City Code, all one-way streets in Manassas Park are 15MPH. Due to a petition circulated by street residents, an enhanced penality of $200 (or 20 hours of community service) will be utilized vs. a general speeding fine if you are lucky enough to be stopped here.
Anyone doing over 30MPH is prob. going to have a bad day. A community park with lots of kids is located on this road.
An ole’ favorite of mine has returned due to construction barriers being taken down and the grass recently cut on this corner.
Officer sits up on the sidewalk/ grass facing westbound traffic coming off a grade, as well as watching cars blow through the marked stop sign of Digital Drive.
Speed limit is marked several times as 35MPH on this four lane highway from Euclid Avenue up through Andrew Drive/ Signal View and beyond. Many drivers utilize this way as a cut through from the Prince William Parkway. Digital Drive is marked as 25MPH.
Not really a "trap," per se, just officers doing their jobs. Violators are stopped around this location for passing stopped school buses loading/ unloading children at the childcare center. Drivers will be cited for Reckless Driving with an automatic court apperance. There is no median in this four lane highway. Please look out for the kids!
Stationary marked police car sits facing eastbound traffic coming down the slight incline monitoring traffic coming over Euclid Avenue past City Hall. This area is posted at 35MPH. Officer has ability to monitor westbound traffic at well. Most residents are well aware of this spot prior to the VRE/ RR Tracks.
Moving RADAR in this area catches people doing 50-52 and above. You prob. will get a ticket for 52+ regardless of your excuse.
Stationary RADAR is ran by marked and unmarked police cruises out of the Sheetz and Exxon parking lots heading southbound and the Crown gas station heading northbound. Mobile enforcement by the above is widespread, as is pacing.
Most late night drivers and early morning commuters ignore the many 35MPH signs from Liberia Avenue (Manassas City) heading into MP nothbound. On the opposite end the speed limit is 45MPH with Reduce Speed Ahead signs 1/2 mile prior to entering the city.
