Reported October 5, 2002 by Bill


Interstate 95 in VirginiaMile Marker 160 near Occoquan.

This driver reports: "Going over the Purple Heart bridge crossing the Occoquan River and passing from Fairfax County to Prince William County and vice versa, the median strip will often have a State Police radar trap, usually pointed Southbound on I95. It is aimed at those drivers who have topped the hill, who are frustrated by DC traffic and believe they can now kick it up several notches. Trap is usually set up during non-rush hours, e.g. night or early morning hours."

"Northbound on I95, shortly after getting into Fairfax County over the Purple Heart bridge crossing the Occoquan River, there sometimes is a trap at the bottom of the hill on the left hand (fast lane) side."

"There are almost no beartraps on the Northbound or Southbound sides of I95 during primary rush hours 7-9 and 4-6, respectively. All state and local police are concentrated on the High Occupany Vehicle (HOV) entrance ramps and HOV lanes and there are many of these. Do not turn on to HOV entrance ramps during rush and limited hours unless vehicle contains three or more passengers."

"Note: There are very few beartraps set up on I95 in Northern Virginia going into or leaving from Washington DC during any rush hour, except for the HOV lanes. The reason for this is simple. Traffic during rush hours, roughly 6-9 AM Northbound and 4-7 PM Southbound precludes speeding. The concentration is on the HOV-3 lanes and those who do not have three passengers."

"Northern Virginia traffic during rush hours and during most daytime hours is so bad that speeding is out of the question..but aggressive driving isn't."
