Sounds to me like the Jefferson officer is the one who needed to be investigated. I know Pendergrass has a reputation for being a speed trap. However the way to avoid that problem is simple. Obey the speed limits.

This was an unusual case in that the officer was found innocent. Too often the police, especially in small cities, have too much power and abuse the authority they were given. Any time someone’s human rights are placed second to the truth then it is too many times. An allegation, true or false, as this one should be investigated to the fullest. Obviously there was enough evidence on the camera for an investigation by GBI to take place. On the flip side Jefferson has too many problems as it is. They need an administration that will clean house from the bottom up to the manager. Try calling Jefferson administration to get information about something. You will not get the answer. They are simply hanging on..

I know few people who has driven throught the town of Jefferson, and not recived a ticket of some kind. There are several speed traps. For example, there will be a construction zone, where the speed limit lowers and the price of a ticket drops, but no construction in sight. Just one, single, solitary, lonely, little orange cone.
There is undoubtedly some shady buisness going on up there. So be aware of the risk when you drive through the city of Jefferson.
