Analysis shows top sites for speeding tickets | The Augusta Chronicle

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office wanted to make drivers more aware of speed limits this year. Based on the number of citations written, they’ve been successful.

As of Oct. 9, the department had already surpassed the number of speeding tickets it issued last year. The 10,209 tickets already represent an 8 percent increase over 2012, and there are still about 2½ months left in 2013. There were 9,446 speeding tickets issued last year.

The Augusta Chronicle analyzed the 10,209 issued, finding that Bobby Jones Expressway, Interstate 20 and River Watch Parkway are the three hot spots for getting a speeding ticket. The three roads accounted for more than 3,700 speeding tickets.
