Warrenton, Virginia Speed Traps
Troopers/deputies during rush hours normally starting at 1630 and Troopers late at night. They face both ways in the medians/cutovers and are in different ones all the time. They are normally at the bottom of hills but I have seen them out of the cars shooting with radar. It is really heavy during holiday weekends catching-out-of- towners going to the Skyline.
Crossover where the Warrenton Town Police, Fauquier County Police, and Virginia State Police fish
Sheriff’s Office and State Police use cross-overs and use stationary radar. Unkmarked vehicles as well as motorcycle.
Someone else posted this one a couple years ago, but I want to add that the level of enforcement has gone up _dramatically_ over the last year. I don’t drive the road every day, but I do drive it fairly frequently, and, in the last year and a half, I have seen at least one (frequently more) police cars waiting to nab you if you’re going more than 5 mph over the limit every single time I’ve been on the road. It seems to be at its worst between the Rappahanock river and where the road narrows from 4 to 2 lanes. The only good thing to say, I suppose, is that, thus far, I’ve not noted any unmarked cars.
State Police as well as the local Sherrif set up Radar on any one of the cross-connectors of this 4-lane 20-mile stretch. The speed limit is 55 mph, and you can get away with just barely 60 mph, but the road is wide open so don’t be tempted for higher speed. You will be tagged.
