Leslie, Georgia Speed Traps
Leslie always has someone out running radar. There is about a mile of highway 280 that is unpopulated but is still in the city limits with a 45 mph sign. It is well known locally that you would be better off avoiding this town if you can.
The policeman followed us a mile and a half before he stopped us. We were not speeding, we were within 76 steps of our corner to turn. When we went to court we proved that we could not have been speeding-then the officer said..Oh, it wasn’t at that street it was at Bailey. Which was not what he put on the ticket. We still had to pay. The courtroom was almost full of violaters.
Leslie has someone out running radar all day and night. They hardley ever give warnings just citations. When you think you are out of town or not in town yet you really are. there is about a mile of highway 280 that looks like just country road but is really within the city limits.WATCH OUT!
