  1. So the reason that Richmond County, through which a speed limit abused section of I-20 passes, is not participating is not newsworthy? GSP had a unit on the westbound lanes of I-20 at Riverwatch yesterday morning and business was brisk.

  2. While speeding may cause some of the accidents and generate a large portion of traffic offense revenue there are other offenses that seem to be ignored. It seems that proper use of turn signals is not being taught, many who know that little lever is there use it for “oh I’m turning now” instead of indicating earlier intent. Some may not know that a couple of years ago a new regulation was put in place, it is illegal to impede traffic by casually riding in the left lane while not actively passing slower vehicles. Remember YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY VEHICLE ON THE ROAD!

  3. They could make a killing on the slower cars in the right lane law..I see that no matter where I drive. Richmond County could fund their entire budget everyday between Marvin Griffin road and Brown road on 56. If you don’t do 20 miles over the limit cars will tailgate you so close you can only see their hood or grill. It’s a wonder they don’t have someone get killed on 56 every day!!
