Brunswick, Georgia Speed Traps
The officer using the lazer was on a bridge over the interstate. There was what looked to be a pile of something next to the rail. I was about 200 hundred feet from the bridge when I saw that it was someone hiding under a cover of some kind.
Brunswick Police routinely run radar/lidar in this area, particularly at the base of the Lanier Bridge and near Fourth Street. Enforcement has increased markedly since November 2011 when SPLOST VI (a local option sales tax) was rejected by the voters.
Local PD waits by the 45mph sign as you come off the bridge at an angle so steep you can’t help but gain speed. They claim it’s the second sign. They pick out of state vehicles and they show no leniency if you’ve never had a ticket of any kind. They just want you to mail in your money. There are no “Reduce Speed Ahead” warning signs. Even the locals will tell you it is a speed trap and they target tourists.
Hwy 17 (55 mph) turns onto Buckswamp Rd. The speed limit is 35 and is not posted for at least 1/4 mile. Many "boys in blue" live near here.
Time to time, a county cop in the black crown vic will sit at the entrance of Majestic Oaks while the prosute vehicles are sitting at Gary Lee BBQ to write you a ticket. The officer is checking speeds going west bound or towards Brantley. Be aware…the speed limit is 45mph where the cop is clocking you and he is sitting around from a blind corner.
