Route 60, road curves to the left. Cop sits off to right where you can’t see them and then jumps out like he’s going to hit you hoping you will speed up and then he’s got you. But believe me, you do not even have to be speeding.
There is a Suffolk Police Car with a officer in it. IF you coming from north carolina there a right curve which is the last right curve and there a little vacant lot with bushes and open space, he will sit on the bushes waiting for speeders. SPeed limit is 55mph and i cruised 60mph passed him and didnt bother me. Watch out because im uncertain of the level of enforcement
Along King’s Highway in the small town of Driver within Suffolk City, the speed limit was recently decreased from 30 MPH to 25 MPH without warning of the decrease. Speed Bumps were also recently added as you merge from the 45 MPH Nansemond Parkway onto King’s Highway toward Driver. Suffolk City Police are regularly seen sitting on the right or left in the parking lots or along the street (hidden) among the local businesses. There is little room to decelerate to 25 MPH once you merge onto King’s Highway (125). Be careful!
Dangerous and infamous Route 460, Locals know it as Pruden Blvd and traffic fatalities are regular. Not uncommon to find local police along this area near the roadside picnic tables. Local police use Lidar, and Moving and Stationary Radar. Posted Limit is 55 mph.
Please travel safely!
