I don’t remember the exact numbers but the town of Arcade had a cottage industry as a speed trap on Highway 129 between I-85 and Athens. They left construction barrels up for at least 5 years and reduced a divided four-lane to 40 mph. God only knows how much they took in as the ticket was issued as a violation of municipal code rather than state code so eventually the state stepped on them for not getting their piece of the action. Net result was the police force was reduced from 14 to 4. Net result of that was the overall crime rates went down. I am vehemently against this bill taking local control of police budgets away from local communities. It should be entirely within the local citizenry and their local government’s purview.
