BE WARE!!! You have been warned! Got popped going 83 in a 70 in Emporia, VA.! (just going the same speed as everyone else! FORGEDDABOUDIT!) Yes, I do believe they target north east drivers cuz they know you're not gonna come back to go to court 2 months later!
Just GOOGLE VA speed traps! ANY speed clocked either 20 miles over the speed limit OR over 80 mph is considered RECKLESS DRIVING in Virginia!
When I got home, Most of my mail was from local VA attorneys offering to appear in CT on my behalf for a flat fee of $150, plus ticket cost and court fees.
AND, they don't give you a ticket OR tell you how much it would be if you just pay, oh no, you have to sign a promise to appear in court on a specific date, and if you don't you're found "guilty in absentia" If you call the court, they will tell you you can send X amount of $$$, but it is an Automatic GUILTY plea to what is a Criminal Misdemeanor in the fine State of Virginia Y'all.
SO, set your car on cruise control thru VA to no higher than 9 miles over the speed limit and you should be okay!!!
This has been a TA Public Service Announcement!
