Interstate 285 West/North in Henry County, just outside Atlanta city limits
The speed limit abruptly and with no warning drops from 70 to 55. The signage is not visible from the inside lanes. There are always eight to twelve patrol cars in this area.
The judge actively encourages a plea of no lo contendre, which means no contest. If you do this, you have to pay the fine, but there are no points added to your license. He never finds for the defendant if he/she pleads not guilty, and the courts charge you a non-refundable $500 fee if you want to appeal his decision. The last sheriff in this county was recently sent to prison for corruption, so the judge is suspect.
The officers often increase the actual speed that you were driving when writing the ticket, and the fines start at $360.
