The village of Toano is a long-established speed trap and the James City police take advantage of the fluctuating speed limit. Coming into Toano from the west on Route 60 the speed limit quickly declines from 55, to 45, then 35. Exiting Toano heading east the speed limit lingers at 35 longer than you’d expect, finally going back to 45 well outside the village. Often the police park their vehicles near the entrance to the school on the east bound lane, within sight of the 45-mph sign. But watch out, don’t accelerate to 45 until you pass the sign! Otherwise it’ll be "gotcha" when you think the speed limit is 45 (you can see the sign, right?) and the revenue-collecting officer reminds you that it’s 35.

25 mph zone. Cruisers sit at the bottom of the ravine catching cars from either direction (both directions are downhill). Avoid this route. They make big money here. I was stopped, even though the school bus in front of me was going about the same speed.

Speed reduces from 45 to 35, then quickly to 25. The 25 mph sign is easy to miss, shaded under trees. Cruisers sit in a sunken driveway (no residence) on the south side just beyond the 25 mph sign (going west). It’s also just pass the Colonial Williamsburg visitor center, nice place to nail tourists! Visitors beware.

Popular shortcut, but residential. 25 mph limit with a $200 bonus fine. Cruisers often sit in the parking lot of the Kiwanis Park.

The entire 15 miles between Yorktown and Williamsburg is a speed trap often 2,3 even 4 during the morning commute.
