State Route 24 near from red light
When leaving Sardis at the red light you go from 25mph to 35mph and you are out of town at the top of hill. Going toward Waynesboro at this point there are no street lights and at night one would think that you have left the city and entering a 55mph zone. Ahead of you is nothing but wide open country. What makes this a speed trap is that about 3/4 mile for this hill is a school district. In off hours the speed limit is 55, in school time it is 45. App. a 3/4 mile before the school is the end of this small town and a 35 mph limit. When you get to the 35mph sign and start down the hill is is normal to think you are out of town and hit the speed control resume button. At this point at night you can not see the school. Don’t resume because the hill will have you traveling 62mph in short order and you will find a cop at the bottom of the hill waiting. I got a ticket at 9:45pm on a Sunday night. You could have taken a nap in the middle of the highway. There was no traffic yet you would think I was drag racing going down the hill. This is a set up for small town revenue.
