Short Pump, Virginia Speed Traps
Police sit in median strip between Strange’s florist and Rt 288 interchnage
Not sure if it is Henrico or state but this area is patrolled by an unmarked maroon 98 Z28. The windows are tinted dark and has no visible lights. Ive seen him pull over at least 7 cars in a 2 day time period when I was coming through the area.
Cruisers usually sit in the drive way of the Good Year Tires store mixed in with various cars being repaired, they will pull you over for speeding east on West Broad St and running the light at Broad/Pouncey tract
Once you get out of Short Pump, the speed limit remains 45 m.p.h., despite, IMO, the road’s capability to handle traffic 10 m.p.h. higher, since it’s a wide 4-lane, divided road in an area not well developed. Watch for a local cop at the intersection by the dealership on the right. That intersection (traveling westbound, remember) has a small chunk of road on the right that’s adjacent to the dealership and dead ends there. He’ll wait in total darkness, clocking you as you approach the dealership. By the time you see him he’s got you. I don’t know how lenient they are with the speed limit at that location, but he caught me by surprise during a leisurely (read: legal) cruise one night.
