Monterey, Virginia Speed Traps
State police and sheriff’s department deputies used to regularly set up in the parking lot of the livestock market just south of town. They had great concealment from both directions. The owner fenced it off and now they sit on the shoulder still just a bit south of town.
Looks like someone received a ticket in Highland County,and they are crying over spilled milk.We have only four Virginia State Troopers assigned to the county.That means there are no more than two on duty at anyone time.The county is mountainous and quite rugged,so speeding doesn’t seem to be a real problem….but if you need correcting,you will be written a citation by one of our fine men in blue.
mostly along u.s. 220 & u.s. 250 but also along u.s. route 84 between vanderpool,va and the west va, state line. be very alert in and around the monterey and mcdowell areas.road checks are also very common in all of highland county va.
This is a 55mph 2-lane highway along a scenic valley where the police can hide in places you will never see until it is too late. Also watch out for the 25mph speed limit going through the town of Monterey.
