Us 84 & US 301

Ludowici, GeorgiaDec 28, 20021 Comments

The small City of Ludowici in Long County in southeast GA is well known to all as a speed trap, although it is much better now than 25 years ago (no signs hidden behind any bushes anymore). Still when passing through slow down as I have started seeing City Police sit on US 84 & 301 when the speed limit drops to 35 (the limit in the county just southwest of town in 65 on this road). They are in plain sight usually near the red light (there is only 1 light in town)But if you do get a ticket just pay the fine cause appealing it would be a serious waste of your time!

The chief tells his officers to allow 19 mph over but for your educational benefit read the state statue on speed tolerance required by city or county law enforcement officers from the state of Ga. 40-14-8. (a) No county, city, or campus officer shall be allowed to make a case based on the use of any speed detection device, unless the speed of the vehicle exceeds the posted speed limit by more than ten miles per hour and no conviction shall be had thereon unless such speed is more than ten miles per hour above the posted speed limit. (b) The limitations contained in subsection (a) of this Code section shall not apply in properly marked school zones one hour before, during, and one hour after the normal hours of school operation, in properly marked historic districts, and in properly marked residential zones. For purposes of this chapter, thoroughfares with speed limits of 35 miles per hour or more shall not be considered residential districts. For purposes of this Code section, the term 'historic district' means a historic district as defined in paragraph (5) of Code Section 44-10-22 and which is listed on the Georgia Register of Historic Places or as defined by ordinance adopted pursuant to a local constitutional amendment.
