Cornelia, Georgia Speed Traps
Small town of 799….funds 75%of city budget giving tickets on I 985.
Demogog judge…..fine hundreds of dollars for 5 miles over….speed limit changes from 65 to 25
Instantly causing drivers to slam on brakes. Next to speed signs where patrol park….the officers have contests to win who can give out most tickets
Cornelia cop sits just south of 15 and 441 with hand held instant radar pointing at traffic north bound thru city limits of cornelia. Its a down hill grade. Baldwin Cop sits just inside of Baldwin city limits on this same section of Hwy. 441. Some days both are out on this section which runs thru both town limits.
Geogia Law Requires that before you can use a speed detection device in you city limits you have to post the speed limit and a sign that states "Speed checked by detection devices" As you enter into the city limits of cornelia on US 441 there is as follows; 1 the city limit sign, 2 speed checked sign. But no speed limit sign. The only speed limit sign is up the road in another city. But that doesn’t cover it. I see them day after day pulling people over for speeding and have even mentioned the error in their ways to the chief of police. But it just gets shrugged off.
Speed Limit was not visible because of sign in front of it.
