Police State of the USSA
Warning. If you are pulled over in Georgia and accused of speeding by more than15 mph, the cop will play stupid and pretend he doesn’t know how much the ticket will be. The cops know how much the ticket is, but are instructed to lie. You are told to go to a website called EZCourtPay.com
When you go to the website, the fine amount appears reasonable. So many people, especially those from out of state, waive their right to contest the citation and mail in the fine/ransom. Then three months goes by. A second fine arrives in the mail for $200. It is accompanied by a note informing you that you already waived your right to contest it and must pay their ransom or loose your license.
This is a sinister scam being perpetrated on the public by so-called lol "public servants" in Georgia. You are intentionally lied to about the amount of the citation by the officer and the court, so you will not show up and contest it.
Since most cops in Georgia are given quotas and/or incentives to issue a minimum number of citations, this encourages cops to give out frivolous citations. The fake ticket dollar amount scam predates on the innocent motorists who have been falsely accused.
The state of Georgia doesn’t want the falsely accused to come to court and possibly have their citation thrown out, or the dollar amount reduced. So they are lying to the accused citizens to discourage them from showing up.
