Acworth, Georgia Speed Traps
This is new. There were 2 of them (roll eyes) plastered there tonight waiting at the county line clocking people over the bridge as they approach cobb county.
CO radar. Lights off, blocking the turn lane into the subdivision (real safe..)
They are running out of roads and have now moved to the small ones out of desperation. Watch it around the curves
They now favor this place (lummus supply company) instead of the already used up boat storage/appliance place down the road. Usually lights on but are illegaly parked deep inside and obscured until right on top of them. Violate the 500ft visibility rule during enforcement per GA statutes the way most of them park.
Mostly there at night.
We are thinking of moving from cobb county, due acworth way of monitoring the traffic and the respect for people. I guess we need a election to.
Police Chief (name deleted) stated to me “I hired that officer to do nothing but ticket people making the slightest traffic error.” I had turned right from Lake Acworth Drive onto Main and stopped at the sign. As I tried to start back up my truck began to go out.
I was not moving — I had my 18 year old truck in neutral and was revving the gas to keep it from stopping. Just as I hit the accelerator the officer hit me with radar and when I got my truck moving she pulled out and ticketed me $156.00 worth!
Squads sit in wait; mainly in hidden locations off the road waiting for anyone going 5 miles or more above the speed limit. It is so easy to go a few miles over when the limit is 25 miles an hour. Sometimes you have to accelerate just to keep your vehicle from stalling out. They get you for moving to close to the line, and other ridiculous traffic errors in downtown Acworth. It has gotten so bad my family and friends are all boycotting the downtown stores in lieu of shopping where we will not be ticketed.
