Summersville is a town in Nicholas County, West Virginia, United States.
The population was 3,194 at the 2000 census.
It is the county seat of Nicholas County.
Summersville, especially along U.S. 19, is well-known as a speed trap.
In 2001 the police department of Summersville issued 18,133 tickets.
Because of this, the city has been seen on several network TV programs including
CNN, CBS, CBC, and the BBC.
The city has been further seen in Money Magazine, USA Today, and dozens of local newspapers in the Midwest.
The myth that this town is a speedtrap is widespread.
The speedlimit drops upon entering the city and is advertised by giant signs with flashing lights.
The reason for the drop in speedlimit is due to the fact that the highway runs through the town
and has virtually no offramps.
This caused massive amounts of car accidents and loss of life in the eighties and early nineties.
CBS did a story on this stretch of highway during this time and called it
"The Most Dangerous Road in America".
Dropping the speedlimit and patrolling it tightly has eliminated most of the problems,
but most travelers don't know the history and continue to label it as a "speedtrap".
Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park is near the town.
