Charleston, West Virginia Speed Traps
Officers sit on both sides of the interstate and wait for you to come over the little knoll, and by the time you see them it is too late. They are set up there to where if they are on one side they can easily exit south bound and go north bound if need be to issue a ticket. I have not received a ticket but it is probably just a matter of time.
Going downhill you naturally pick up speed in this area. There are officers watching at the Citgo, or in the residential area on the opposite side of the road. They usually catch you right before the merge onto Interstate 64.
CPD sits on Greenbrier St. directly over Interstate 64 using radar, laser etc. clocking motorists and then radio ahead to pull speeders over. Most unaware motoroists and or out of state drivers do not obviously see the CPD due to the fencing facing the highway from Greenbrier St.
The Charleston and South Charleston police rader the entire corrider from MacCorkle Ave to Walmart. They like to sit in the median right before southridge Do the smart thing and set your cruise control for 50-55 MPH.
Under the interstate on Pennsylvania Av beside the City of Charleston maintenance garages & a series of warehouses & just past Women & Children’s Hospital is where the new city police officers Train to use their radar guns. They regularly ticket folks leaving the hospital and everyone else who travels over 30 mph along this stretch of road.
