Worst speed-trap city: Marietta (11th worst in the nation)
Most notorious speed trap: Lenora Church Rd, Snellville
Total speed traps per 100,000 residents: 23.9
As many a Georgia Bulldog student has no doubt learned, it's best to stay on the main highways heading home to Atlanta from Athens on the weekends. The town of Snellville isn't the only trap.
17. South Carolina
Worst speed-trap city: Greenville
Most notorious speed trap: SC 151, through McBee
Total speed traps per 100,000 residents: 24.2
There are just over 20 miles separating Greenville and Spartanburg, SC's second-worst trap city, and both are well over double the state's per-capita average. In between the two cities is nothing but an airport, and BMW's North American factory. I'm sure that's purely a coincidence though.
Worst speed-trap city: Fayetteville
Most notorious speed trap: US 63 and I-40, Hazen
Total speed traps per 100,000 residents: 24.5
The town of Hazen, home of the most notorious speed trap in the state, was originally located along Highway 70. Then, I-40 was built. Now, look at the overhead view of the town lines, and tell me if anything looks a little fishy to you.
