Richland, Georgia Speed Traps
Patrol cars on both the south and north bound entrances to Richland.
The speed limits on this highway fluctuate.
On my way to Columbus from Albany, I came across a speed limit sign that said 65 mph. Maybe not even two minutes later, I was pulled over by an officer in a black charger sitting on the top side of a hill. By the time I reached the police officer I was going 60 mph but the officer clocked me at 79 mph in a 55 mph zone. This was like getting a ticket in the middle of the desert…this was my first ticket in life. I live in North Carolina and was here visiting my mother. I travel a lot and have driven thousands of miles, this was definitely a….speed trap.
I got a ticket for 56 mph in a 55 mph zone, officer said that I was driving too fast for conditions because it rained earlier in the day. Officer also called me “boy” about 5 times. Richland is the only place I know of where the word “boy” is pronounced with about 5 syllables.
SR520 Near Mile Marker 11. Hilly desolate 4 Lane Divided Highway West of Richland Ga. Several miles outside of Richland City Limits. Speed Limit is 55 MPH. Richland City Police sit at top of hills or patrol both directions catching people as they top hills. Dont understand how or if they have legal jurisdiction but they are constantly there writing tickets.
