Windsor, Virginia Speed Traps
Hwy goes from 55, to 45, then to 35. It is too easy for the police to sit behind a sign and nab someone. Should you be speeding….no. However the Hwy has numerous amounts of semi trucks that block the right lane. If you don’t see the sign then your out $200 and the police are laughing all the way to the bank! Signs need to be flashing and more of them.
Mainly waiting for you after dark behind the church sign and they’ve hit four folks already today.
a real success story here..a nice quiet and friendly town on a major highway for the time being.. a major by pass is in the plans..town hired a police officer to mainly check on several small stores and gas stations when closed late at night.. sort of a night watchman type position.. but they found a source of un tapped revenue by setting up speed limit zones and copying waverly VA. and the infamous emporia VA speed revenue enforcement officers actions..it was such a success they hired a second then a third officer.. they have had a hard time keeping officers mainly poor pay and if a person wants to do police work it’s not what the town wants these positions are for revenue enhancement officers not police officers..if the bypass is built Windsor will become another dried up small town..
Coming from 258, coming into Windsor onto N. Court Street, in less than 100 yards you will go from 35 to 25 and Barney Phyfe sits right inside the 25 sign.
The cops here in our little Windsor are up on Church St. waiting for you to go over 25 or run a stop sign and I mean 6am in the morning. Get a life will ya!
