Alpharetta, Georgia Speed Traps
This road is a nice 4 lane near a Mall and a nice curbed median. It is unfortunately a 35 mph zone. This road should at the least be a 45 mph zone.
What were they thinking?
Usually at least two motorcycle cops sit in a turn lane and check your speed as you come over a hill. When you get close they step out in the road and flag you over, write you a ticket and then send you away.
Watch out for the black and white with no lights on it. Fear him, he had no facial expression and a monotone voice. It was like talking to your executioner.
This is a construction area where posted speed limits are 55mph. At any given time, traffic is easily in excess of 80mph or more. Alpharetta City Police are patrolling this area strongly. Officers will sit off to the side of the road down the ditch out of view of all commuters.
Taylor Road attaches to Jones Bridge and is a one-way street leading to Chattahoochee High and Taylor Road Middle schools as well as several neighborhoods. The extreme traffic caused by a one way street to a school prevents speeding when school gets in and out but there is a window in which you can get a ticket. What do most kids do when they sleep in? They drive fast to school to avoid being late. Well, the same cop that directs traffic at the Jones Bridge Taylor Road intersection comes down to the bottom of the hill and catches students flying down the 25 MPH limit sign. You can’t see them till you peak the hill and they already have you. Don’t speed down that hill during school hours – especially 8:30 – 10:00 a.m.
