Tappahannock, Virginia Speed Traps
they are voracious. they sit in the median, facing so that the monitor both north and south. speed limit is 55, though the road could take more…. no discussion…60 and you you are toast. friendly but firm. each weekend i go by both ways…there is always one each way each day without exception for all of 2003 and 2004
State police car on the side of the road.
Watch out. They’ll bust you for as little as 4 miles over the limit. They have the newer radars that detect radar detectors, and they WILL, I repeat, WILL take it. They will also arrest you for reckless. The judge is pretty fair, but the troopers will right your ticket up for well over what you’re actually doing. ( eg, I was travelling at 70 in pack in a 55 zone, got pulled with other vehicle and was ticketed at the same rate as another car that blew past me at 83; judge didn’t believe me, trooper has a high reputation for multiple-vehicle pulls.) They sit everywhere, local enforcement and state. They’ll also hide off to the side, behind trees, and floor it out.
