No Radar Speed Detection in Loganville?

Not quite. As of January 1, 2011, Gwinnett County Police and other nearby City Police lost their ability to use their radar and laser speed detection devices to catch speeders.  AJC 1/4/11.  The problem is the result of a legal battle over whose tax money will cover public safety issues. While the debate is in court, law enforcement officers are back to using the pacing method to determine a vehicle’s speed.

However, “Only two Gwinnett County cities can continue to use radar and laser guns at this point." 11alive 1/5/11.  The City of Loganville Police Department is one of those cities. They can still use radar and laser speed detection devices on Loganville streets because their permit does not expire until the end of 2011.

If you find yourself being pulled over by the Police for speeding, be sure to find out how your speed was determined and call our office to discuss your options.
