I continue to get messages from folks who have had speeding tickets while traveling through Poulan GA in Worth County (See speed traps in GA)That small town is just asking for an investigation into their illegal practices. Jan through Nov 2006, 4 Poulan Police wrote 1871 speeding tickets on a 1 mile stretch of HWY 82. This is public record. If you find yourself a victim contact GA State Patrol and ask for an investigation, call the GA Dept of Public Saftey, call the GA Attorney General's office, make your case known. Fight for what is right. I am waiting for a State Court date to hear my case. E-mail me at Moderator Removed email.

someone may know this story a little better than i do;

i think it was blackshear, ga, that had a similar 65/45 trap. i got a ticket there once, but my local sheriff had it thrown out.

anyhow, several people had reported it, and some state official was coming down to investigate and was pulled over and written a ticket in the same stretch. things did not work out well for the city.

I got one by the fat deputy that could hardly get out of the car. Warwick is just as bad. Same county.

First time driving this route from GA to AL, which I told the officer, the last speed limit sign I saw was 65. (I had cruise control set @ 70 for 65 zone). The officer was sitting on OTHER side of 55 speed limit sign, as I came down overpass seeing sign decreased speed, she turned on her lights pulled behind me. She said she clocked me doing 70 in 55. She did ask if I wanted calibration checked which I relied yes. She said it was correct, offered no proof, I didn't know enough to ask. I asked if I could get a warning as I had never had a tickect, (61 yrs old), she said she didnt check my driving history, continued to explain court date and number to call. When I attempted again to request information about the speed signs, she said that was a mile back, and we weren't going to (missed her word) on the side of the highway, I could contest in court. I had turned right onto a side road, we weren't on highway 82. 5 hour drive back to contest. Disgusted.

This is a really, really, really old thread

but


these small town agencies have to do something to make money. These podunk towns don't have much of a tax base. Taxes on the people and corporations that can afford it is considered evil socialism and of course nobody wants to part with the agencies. They hate cops when they get busted for speeding but hate them even more when they call 9-1-1 and they don't show up quickly.

If the traffic is speeding.... "Going with the traffic" is speeding!

It doesn't matter if everyone else is doing it. And admitting that you're "going with the traffic" is admitting guilt to the officer, something you definitely don't want to do.

Lol people who whine about speeding tickets crack me up. If you don't want a speeding ticket, don't speed. Not hard logic.

Speed limit changes make that tricky. If you were doing 66 in a 65 (not at all hard to do given speedometer inconsistencies) and the limit goes down to 55 without you realizing it, you're suddenly going 11 mph over the limit when you thought you were obeying the law.

Thankfully, on interstates, I have a GPS which is usually smart enough to catch such unexpected changes if I were to miss one for some reason (and I usually don't).

Haha, who doesn't notice the big white speed limit signs on the side of the road? Also, many places have yellow signs warning you of an impending lower speed change before it actually changes. Driving is not hard.
