whats a speedtrap?


Not sure if serious...it's where cops hide around bends or signs in the middle of nowhere in order to catch you speeding.

The 7-8 times I've driven 29 between c'ville and DC I've done the whole thing at 80 mph and have yet to see a cop. Am I just extremely fortunate?

Yes...I was told by UVA staff that two counties in particular are notorious for writing tickets along route 29. Unfortunately, I can't recall which ones they were, I'm pretty sure it's the two before you reach Albemarle County.

Edit: I also personally saw four speed traps on the way down to Cville. It was a Friday evening and they may be out for DC getaway traffic.
