Carrollton, Georgia Speed Traps
Motorcycle officer up on bridge hiding behind guardrails with laser; patrol cars waiting past exit. Limit is 55. This is on a four-lane limited access divided highway.
Speed limit changes at Clinic Ave. from 45 to 40. They use radar.
The police hide in a parking lot at the end of a fairly long street and can laser you from the time you come around a curve all the way to where they are staked out. The street is a well known thoroughfare to the west side of town. It is mostly residential with sidewalks on both sides of the street. Neighbors have complained – very few children on this street and the residents are not out in their yards as a good percentage of them are older. There is some pedestrian traffic, but I would think all of these people know to look before crossing the street or pulling into the street.
Between Maple St and 166 Bypass, the limit is 35 mph. It’s difficult to go that slowly on this road. Police watch it carefully.
City Police sit next to the Dairy Queen at Hwy27 & Hwy16 and Lasar the north lanes of Hwy 27 as you come under the Rail Road Bridge.The speed limit is 40 and you get a ticket for 50+. Hwy 27 is a 4 lane road with a meadian where you are lasered. They are there more at the begining and end of the month.
