Varnell, Georgia Speed Traps
The little town boasts of having the highest traffic accident rate in the county thus they are beefing up patrols. See link: http://www.daltondailycitizen.com/siteSearch/apstorysection/local_story_112222223.html
The highway stretches for 18 miles at a 55 mph with only two lanes. But when you enter Varnell, GA, the speed limit slows to 45 and the road widens to 4 lanes with a turning lane. They will run radar and travel the roads as well.
Varnell is a small town of about 1200 people. It has been known for years that it would use its policing powers to raise revenue. The Varnell Municiple Judge quit this year because he was tired of all the picky tickets by the police. He told me "it is all about money". Varnell’s Police force has just went full time and has a total of NINE, yes 9 police officers, 3 are full time, including 2 probation officers. Also, minor offences such as no tag light and failure to turn headlights on in a sprinkle will get you a substantial fine of up to $100 or more.
