West Point, Virginia Speed Traps
Local law enforcement likes to set up in the driveway of the marine supply/boat sales business at the east end of the Mattaponi Bridge on Highway 33 (37°32’05.1″N 76°46’47.6″W). This gives them excellent line of sight to the crest of the bridge while also hiding their car so well among the boats that you will never spot them until it is too late. The officers here are very strict, so do not expect to receive a warning. Bottom line: do not speed while traversing the Mattaponi Bridge.
It’s constantly patrolled by New Kent Co deputies and they have little tolerance. I got pulled for doing 62 in a 55.
It’s close to NK Courthouse so they don’t have to work hard to get the revenue.
These roads between I-64 and Saluda are heavily patrolled. They are lightly travelled country roads. Both State and county cops patrol them. That segment traverses five counties.
Speed Changes from 25 mph to 45 mph but you are on a three lane street. Officer is at 45mph sign and if you increase speed before you pass sign.Gottcha! Also coming over bridge speed is 45 mph at bottom of bridge speed limit is 25 mph. They catch you coming and going.
Parked City of West Point police car just after river bridge crossing.
