Chippenham Parkway near State Route 76 Powhite Pkwy

Richmond City, VirginiaMar 19, 20052 Comments

This trap usually is set up during the mid-day hours with both marked and unmarked Richmond City Police Department vehicles. They hide in the median just after the Forest Hill overpass on the northbound side, and on the right-hand shoulder just beyond the Huguenot Rd overpass on the southbound side of Chippenham.

The posted limit on this divided highway is 45 mph, but general traffic flow is 55 to 60 most anytime day or night. Enforcement is not excessive, but they are out there. Most will give you about 10 mph over, but that is about it.

I have gone past a marked car going 57 and was not pulled. {Whew!} I feel it my civic duty to warn everyone else to slow down through there. 🙂

Interstate 95 near Exit Number 79

Officers from the VA State Police, Henrico County and Richmond City are on a ticket-writing blitz. I-95 from Parham Road to Bells Road (about fifteen miles of the road) has been declared a "highway safety corridor" as of January 7th, 2005. Fines will be as high as $500 for speeding and $2500 for DUI or reckless operation! The speed limit is posted (too low) at 55 mph — and they really are enforcing it. To be fair, however, it has been put out across the media and signs are posted as a warning to all. This action comes as a result of an unusually high number of crashes in recent months. Speed is not always the culprit, however, as most people here just can’t drive very well. 🙁 Too bad they are not ticketing "left lane hogs" or people who do not use their signals when making lane changes.
