South Riding, Virginia Speed Traps
There are two stop signs on this street and they are watching for drivers to stop at signs and also stopping speeders as well.
Every now and then there’s a Sheriff posted on Nations St on the side closer to Loudoun County Pkwy right by the stop sign. Tall Cedars Pkwy goes from 45 mph to 35 mph right after the light so it’s easy to be speeding down to the dead end. My sister got stopped once for going too fast down Nations St. When asked if she knew the speed limit, she replied "no," that it wasn’t posted, which it’s not. He let her off with a warning, but I’m not sure if it was for a lack of speed limit signs or because he maybe didn’t use his radar gun.
This is a three-way intersection (one day it will be four-way, but Tall Cedars isn’t done yet). Cops like to wait on the unfinished part of Tall Cedars and monitor compliance with the stop signs. They’re there often, business must be good.
Speed limit is 25mph — it is a resiential (neighborhood) street, but it is long and wide with houses mostly on one side and only one stop sign along its main 1-mile stretch.
County police, possibly even some of the several that live in the neighborhood, will ticket you for as little as 30mph.
