GA I-20 Exit 195 area

Augusta, GeorgiaMar 04, 20142 Comments

GA Exit 195 I-20 East bound entering Augusta / Richmond Co. / Wheeler Rd area from Columbia co.. This is a 3 lane section where the speed drops from 65 to 55 in a 1/4 mile leaving Columbia Co. and entering Augusta Richmond Co. The 1 speed limit sign is located further off the road behind other signs. It is only visible for a second of 2 if the driver is in the Right Lane is closely looking and not watching for merging traffic. There is no Left sign placement. The only sign located on the far right is NOT visible at all by any driver in the other 2 lanes.

Richmond Co. Sheriff Deputies using Laser and/or K band radar are normally just pass the bridge and located on the Wheeler Entrance Ramp to I-20 about 150 yards further down. They normally aim at cars in the Left lane where are no Speed Limit or Reduce of Speed signs.

The speed limit from i 285 Atlanta to Augusta ( 175 miles) is 70mph with a spot or two being 65mph. The traffic is running 70 to 78 mph for over 150 miles on this open road with few stops. Mile marker 194 entering Richmond county drops from 65 to 55 just as the first comment describes. The traffic is still running 70 to 78 mph. No signs in sight until surrounded by blue lights from a bevy of shiny new dodge hemis. They work the two outside lanes of traffic that never saw a sign. The 55 mph is from mile marker 194 to 199, The South Carolina border bridge. South Carolina goes back to 70 mph. 285 to richmond , 70 mph - richmond markers 194-199 is 55 mph speed trap - back to 70 mph at the south carolina side. The Richmond County commissioners, Sheriffs department are treating the I20 traffic like scratch off tickets for confiscated funds, traffic fines to support a local dead economy. They have the masters golf tournament and James Brown. James is Dead. So is the local economy. The Governor needs to shut this down like lester maddox did Ludiwici, Ga.

This trap also targets people with out of state tags. The cop that pulled me over ignored the Georgia tag that was passing me as I was being pulled over. The officer asked me if I still lived in my state. When I said yes, he said he would return with my citation. When we left, we counted all the cars pulled over and all had out of state tags- there were 7. Other vehicles were being passed, like I was, when they got pulled.
