Dalton, Georgia Speed Traps
Whitfield County deputy sits beside school bus at intersection of Carbondale Road and Lower Dug Gap Road in Dalton GA. Also, in front of the Carbondale Club House.
Relatively rural area a few miles south of Dalton that has become heavily patrolled, especially on weekends. County sheriff’s deputies and state patrol will shoot radar and laser from the overpass with several cars in waiting on the ramp to issue citations. I saw 5 cars pulled over at one time just past the exit.

Doin’ 43-45 in a 35 MPH zone. Officer said I was doing 47…
The Dalton State College Police have started enforcing the College Drive Road in front of the college. The road is clearly marked, and the speed is justified. It is just very hard to maintain 30 mph for several miles, and they will get you coming from the 40 to the 30.
The Dalton Bypass is loaded with county officers hidden in as many places just over hills, in the media and so forth. This area although is in the county, Dalton City officers seen patrolling it is not uncommon. Georgia State patrol is also seen from time to time. I have even seen a dog catcher with someone pulled over to the side. This 4 lane divided highway (2 north, 2 south)(5-Lanes at red lights) should be 65 MPH according to state regulations, but has a speed limit of 55 MPH even though red lights are several miles apart. Several long straight aways with no sharp or blind curves what so ever. This 55MPH speed limit changes to 45 MPH where is crosses Chatsworth Hwy., Cleveland Hwy, and the Rockyface area with not much notice at all.
