Atlanta, Georgia Speed Traps
Morning commute. Two police officers shoot radar at cars traveling North on Roswell Road. They wait for you to come down a hill and hit. Pulling over cars 2 x 2. Two police officers writing ticket. Very lucrative for the City.
Cop will hide in the parking lot next to McDonalds. Be careful making the left turn into the Cookout, he will nab anyone making that left turn (over the two sets of double yellows across Northside Drive). The best thing to do is to just make a U-turn at the 14th street light. The same cop is also in a good place to get people speeding on that part of Northside Drive.
The City of Atlanta has reduced the speed limit to 50 mph just a few miles before the MLK exit. There is the same officer there every day during rush hour to deliver citations. This is clearly a revenue scheme by the Atlanta Police Department, the City of Atlanta, and it’s municipal court.
Every morning between 6:30 and 7:30 on Peachtree Road, south of Buckhead between the big churches and North of Peachtree Battle shopping center.
I WAS STOPPED BY A POLICEMAN ON MOTORCYCLE CLAIMING I WAS TRAVELING 43 ON A 30 SPEED LIMIT ZONE. I WAS FOLLOWING THREE OTHER VEHICLES ON THAT STRETCH AND I WAS SELECTED. THE POLICEMAN WAS NOT HOLDING THE SPEED DETECTING GUN UP WHEN I SAW HIM SITTING AT THE INTERSECTION. AFTER HE ISSUED THE TICKET, I ASKED HIM TO SEE THE DEVICE AND HE TOLD ME TO GET OUT OF THE CAR AND FOLLOW HIM. I DID AND SAW THE READING SHOWING 43 ABD ANOTHER NUMBER SHOWING 480. MY SUSPITION TELLS ME THE TEADING WAS NOT RECENT AND THAT PROBABLY OTHERS HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE SAME READING. HAVE OTHERS BEEN ISSUED A TICKET WITH THE SAME SPEEDS AS MINE?
