U.S. 15 South

Orange, VirginiaSep 24, 20101 Comments

Southbound U.S. 15 (four lane divided highway), after turning off of Route 20 W and driving down a steep hill that a bicyclist would have trouble avoiding exceeding the speed limit. The limit is 25 mph. I wonder if anyone has informed the locals that any political jurisdiction that accepts federal funds for their highway department must perform engineering studies before establishing posted speed limits, as federal law requires.

Route 615 at Rapidan

Going North on 615 the speed goes from 55 to 25 with little warning. The trap is at the bottom of a long hill. The 25mph sign, not proceeded by a warning, is obscured by tree limbs. County and State police take turns sitting at the bottm of the hill with radar. There is an additional $200 fine for speeding in a residential area but you don’t get to any residences for about 1/2 mile after the 25 mph begins. The fine for 40/25 is $450 plus $61.00 CC.

Coming into the town of Orange on Route 15,slow down.The town police enforce the 25 mph townwide speed limits with a vengeance.Consider the whole Mayberry burg a speedtrap.I was stopped(but not ticketed)for a blistering 28/25 violation and warned to "slow down".They mean it,folks.
