The funny thing is that there is no record of this. He was apparently not arrested even though he was held in jail for two days without bond and he didn't get a formal citation, only a receipt. They said you pay or you wait until your court date???
This town had maybe one gas station and one restaurant ...that's right IHOP. This is obviously a large percentage of their income as a town.
It was about 20 min. north of Valdosta.
: : 99 in a 65 near Valdosta, GA. April 1998. Topped a hill on I-75 and got hit with laser three times. Valentine One went crazy, but it was too late.
: : GA State Trooper took "pity" on me and recorded the lowest of three readings (all taken within a few seconds of each other -- 103, 101, and 99). He took my license, had me follow him to a gas station where three others were waiting w/ another Trooper. They took us all to the county courthouse and put us behind bars until we payed our fines. Heh, I even got my mug taken.
: : $384 ticket, had to pay it on the spot or spend a night in jail.
: : NOTHING beats laser and do NOT speed near Valdosta... speed traps galore.
