Solicitor to dismiss River Watch tickets where signs were wrong | The Augusta Chronicle

Richmond County State Court Solicitor Kellie McIntyre said she expects to dismiss speeding tickets issued on a part of River Watch Parkway where the speed limit signs were wrong.

The speed limit of a section of River Watch Parkway was reduced to 45 mph Thursday, but the change was correct this time because a lane was closed.

In a statement issued Thursday, McIntyre said that in the interest of fairness, her office will try to identify any of the questionable citations issued on River Watch for review.

“It is important to note that this does not include all citations issued on River Watch Park­way; however, we anticipate that those that were issued because of the error will be dismissed,” her statement said.

The citations were called into question this week after The Augusta Chronicle reported that Richmond County sheriff’s officers had been enforcing a speed limit on a portion of River Watch that was marked incorrectly for months.
