The statewide “Click It or Ticket” summer program to reduce high-fatality crashes and speeding is underway.
This marks the seventh consecutive season that police across the state are rolling out enforcement patrols to crack down on dangerous, aggressive and high-speed drivers.
The 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. (Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic) program started May 30 and runs until Labor Day.
During the 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. police will be enforcing the state’s new Super Speeder Law that took effect January 2010 to help put the brakes on Georgia’s high-risk speeders. The Super Speeder Law tacks on an additional $200 state-fine for drivers convicted of speeding at 75 mph-or-more on any two-lane road or speeding 85-and-over anywhere in Georgia.
Charlie, it has nothing to do with public safety. This is highway robbery with the blessings of our state government, that would have these same officers arrest us for armed robbery if we took each other's money by armed force. I wonder how many tax dollars could be left in our pockets, by our government if not for this and other legal plunders, such as random roadblocks to check for current driver's license, proof of insurance, dui, drugs, guns and other so called contraband. What this state operated speed trap will do is enhance the government's coffers, so that they can buy more of those expensive trooper cars, so that they can hire more unneeded state troopers to burn up more of our precious gasoline, thus driving up the cost of fuel for those of us trying to make an honest living. Thank you for you opinion and let's keep speaking out against the police state we are living in, today.
