Ga. is a pretty tuff on speeding. They have a lot more troopers and city cops working the Interstate than Fl. It's been my experience that the most patrolled areas are I-75 south of Atlanta to around Macon and.... south Georgia near the Florida line ( Valdosta & Adel area). These guys work in packs with spotters on overpasses and won't think twice writting "some guy in a Camaro".

We also have the new super speeder law.
It will cost you if you get nailed running over 85mph.

FYI keep an eye out the cops in GA like to hang out at the local waffle house my buddy and I found this out back at the Fbody Gathering 1 in the end we were pulled over by 4 squad cars and one chopper

The end result was a "boys enjoy your fast cars thank you for stopping if not it would have been the guy up in the air chasing you, now park those cars and go to bed

Yes Sir

Bottom line we all know these cars are fast and real fast no need to show off on the streets that is what the track is for

I hate to say this but to each his own...... if the local and state troopers see the numbers of tickets issued that weekend they will definately get it into the media and use it as propaganda to blame an event like this for bringing speeders outta the woodwork. Lets keep it legal and wait for the chance to use it at the track.

Ontario Canada put a new "racing" law in place that inhibits any speed that is "50 kph" (30 mph) over the posted. Upon being stopped the officer takes your license for 7 days and impounds your vehicle for 7 days. Upon conviction the fine is not less than $2000 up to $10,000 and the license suspension can be up to two years!

I was just warned today about the strictness of the GA police. The friend I am bringing was stopped for 5 over with "$450" pricetag. . .granted I'm sure there is a tad of exageration in this story, but it scared me!

If you get into the category of "super speeder" in Georgia (75 and over on two-lane roadway & 85 and over anywhere in Georgia) your license is immediately suspended. When this law went into effect, Muscogee and Chatahoochee counties were tacking on an additional $200 fine for speeds above 75-85. The link in a previous shows a $50 additional fine. Just putting the info out there. As I've said before; do the research, make an informed decision, exude confidence. Hopefully no one will end up walking with a pretty Camaro impounded!

So your friend may not have been exaggerating.

Wholly crap !!! 75 is only 120 KM/H. .... They won't even touch you (most times) on the 401 here until you push 125!! Safety in numbers.... I hope
