175 speed trap heading towards Chincoteague

Beware of the SPEED TRAP on 175 as you are driving from Ray's Shanty towards Main St. in Chincoteague. The speed limits fluctuate several times and the signs used to mark the speed limit changes are small rectangles inserted in orange diamond warning signs. In at least two places, there is a 15-mile difference in the speed limit depending on which direction you are driving in. Also, some of the speed changes happen very fast! You have been warned! :-)

We ate at Rays on Sunday, and saw someone headed west get nailed by this trap.

Thanks for the heads up. My husband is heading up that way next week.
