VPD: Hill Avenue Detour Violators Will Be Ticketed

| June 19, 2013

Valdosta Police Car1_1After months of playing the ‘nice guy,’ Valdosta Police say they’ve just about had enough with motorists driving through the West Hill Avenue detour. Starting Thursday, the VPD says they will be ticketing those who are refusing to take the detour.

Local traffic can either take Savannah Avenue or River Street to avoid the detour- and subsequent $112 fine.

That new overpass is expected to be completed by December of next year. When completed, it is expected to help drivers avoid long wait times when trains crawl through that area.

    If they want everyone to take the detour then close the road. Leaving lanes open is like baiting a field, a setup.

      Lets get real people! Why can’t you just follow the rules and take the Detour! If you follow the rules the police could not “bait” you ! People just need to follow the rules and quit blaming others for your wrongs! Just saying.
