In Hagan, Georgia between Reidsville and Claxton.

Traveling through rural Georgia from Reidsville to Claxton, the road suddenly becomes a 4-lane in what seems to be the middle of nowhere. Unexpectantly, the speed limit changes from 55 to 45. Why a 4-lane was needed here is a big question. Coming into the 2.2 miles that makes up Hagan in Evans County with all 898 people (according to the website), the speed quickly drops to 40 and then 35 before returning to a 2-lane and entering Claxton city limits (a much larger town). I have been stopped here twice: once, I was accused of drinking and swerving, although I was doing neither and required to blow into a breathalyzer. I questioned the officer and was rudely screamed at and told I had been taped on a video camera in his belt buckle (?) After a few moments, he came back with a warning which read I had crossed the “fog line” 5x. The other time, I was leaving Hagan and quite away from an semblance of “town” and thought the speed limit had already returned to 55. I was stopped for doing 62 in a 45. The officer wrote on the ticket that I was in a congested area under bad weather conditions. No other car even passed by the entire time he had me pulled over. This was rural Georgia! And although it was just turning dusk, it was not raining or foggy. There was no bad weather. That ticket cost me $200.
