This is sad but unfortunately not surprising. Ohh the power of politics....

At least us common citizens have Waze that reduces some risk.

I have gotten hit more than once spanning a decade going over 80 on 95S, most recent was memorial day weekend year before last; where the misses and I typically head down to Hilton Head for a long weekend visiting family. Fortunately my combat vet tags (and of course not being a pompous, self righteous jerk) have gotten me out of anything other than "warnings".

Iíve said it before and Iíll say it again: VA should never have raised the max speed limit to 70 on interstates unless raising the RD limit was included in a package deal. Raising the speed limit to 70 without raising the RD limit guaranteed that the RD law will never change. Too much easy money being made.

Hopewell has been the most vocal about anything that cuts into their ticket revenue. Hereís the most egregious example:
