Manassas, Virginia Speed Traps
Police sit on Clifton or on Lomond and radar you as you round the curve. Watch your speed. Limit is 25 and stick to it; police will pull you over for >30 MPH and will exaggerate the ticket up to the next threshold.
A very sleazy Prince William cop tailed me on my blind spot while I did the exact speed limit. Just we approached the Independent Hill Drive intersection, the light went from green to red with orange lasting about 1 second. At my distance from the light I had to stand on the brakes to keep from running through it. He then rode my bumper for about a half mile until we passed by a Virginia State trooper speed trap on the side of the rode, after which mister sleaze exited the highway. I believe the cop controlled the light change-over to try to entrap me on a red light moving violation.
I travel up this way a few times a week and frequently see a Prince William County cop in the North bound right turn lane (turn lane to go towards Manassas). He is almost always patrolling northbound traffic but I wouldn’t put it past them to patrol southbound as well.
A few hundred yards after the only stop sign going towards 234 on Purcell road, you’ll see a motorcycle cop hidden on the right side of a neighborhood entrance waiting for speeders to pass by.
Going west on Moore Drive from the Prince William Parkway, the speed limit changes from 55 to 25. There is a speed limit sign within the first 50 feet, but it is easy to miss. You crest the hill and the trap is about 100 yards down Moore Drive. The police then tell you how fast you were going.
