The city of Greenville, GA is a beautiful small town, but I have been concerned about a situation that I recently came across on the Internet. I have heard about people being stopped by the police in Greenville, GA for "speeding". These are people that I know and have all been law abiding citizens, are great upstanding individuals in different communities in the metro Atlanta area and did not feel like they were speeding or should have been stopped. However, they paid the fines and went about their business and became extremely careful when going through there or have taken alternate routes to avoid it. Either there is some serious confusion about the speed limit sign postings there or as many people on this site refer to it; it is a speed trap. The posted signs go from 55 to 45 to 35 in just seconds and there is a slight hill which really can pose a problem with speed. It's all right there in and around the square area. There are almost always police cars "hidden" near the jail, the square and other inconspicuous places. We travel through there quite frequently and are exceptionally careful about our speed and how careful we are to make those stops at the stop signs in the square extra long to make sure we aren't pulled over and quite frankly two of my family members have been in the past year. So I found this blog quite interesting, considering the number of people that we know that have been stopped there. I wish you would go to this website and read what people are writing about the City of Greenville, GA, it's not very positive and does not give a very good representation of the city for future tourists. I stumbled across it while researching information on the area for some possible land purchase. Has anyone ever investigated this or is there anything to there any truth to these comments?
I couldn't find the terms of this service, and believe that I have been fair and polite in what I wrote here, however, I can't agree to terms that I can't find.
