Wheeling, West Virginia Speed Traps
As you come out of the tunnel at 45 (as it is posted for) and fully aware you need to get over a lane to exit on 0 (zero), cars merge on going fast so your either choice is to go faster or brake harshly to get behind them. When you hit the off ramp at or above 45 you realize that a posting for 25 comes too sudden to break unless you slam your brakes on and get rear-ended. You can see the 15 the same time you can see the 25. Worse is, the School Zone that means in a short distance you have to go 45 to 15. Cops need not even get you with radar for they know it’s impossible to go 15 suddenly without causing an accident.
They love to hang out in grassy median in the 55mph zone or on the truck weigh stations arounf the hospital area.
Tip: If you have a radar detector than you are set because they always leave their Ka band running so it’s a dead giveaway that they are tagging.
When you cross over to Ohio be careful because they love to tag you from an elevated entry ramp where can not see them until it’s too late.
