Albany - Speeders in Albany may soon get tickets from Dougherty County Police. Right now, DCP officers aren't able to use radar on vehicles within the city limits because of permit restrictions with the Department of Transportation, even if they pass a car going 90 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone.

That will soon change though. The officers won't set up to run radar within city limits, but if they pass a speeding car, they will be allowed to write that driver a ticket. "When our officers are moving from spot to spot in the county they meet oncoming traffic at excessive rates of speed, operating dangerously and we are not allowed by law to write a radar case unless we're specifically listed for that route on the radar permit," said Chief Don Cheek.

DCP has also added on some radar routes that weren't previously listed for running radar, including Roads in Riverpointe and Stonebridge Subdivisions.
