On Fairburn Rd between Old Lee Rd and West County Line.

This is a school zone for Mt. Carmel Elementary although the school does not have an entrance from Fairburn Rd and only the roof can be seen from Fairburn Rd.(It is down a steep embankment.) The lights do not always flash for the 35 mph speed change. No one notices the school zone until they are right on it because the school is not visible. A police car sits in the trees and lasers oncoming traffic before they hit the speed change. Got 6 drivers in 20 minutes while I was waiting for a pick up.

I-20 E and Chapel Hill Rd.

Police stand on bridge, outside of their car, over I-20 and point radar gun on vehicles traveling East toward Atlanta. Several police vehicles are stationed on the Chapel Hill entrance ramp to I-20, which is obscured by trees, and pull over the vehicles identified by the police on the bridge.

Hwy 5 at Dog River Bridge

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will often sit on this bridge running radar, usually in attempts to catch northbound traffic (limit 55 mph). A few contributing factors: the area is wooded, roadway is merging from four to two lanes, the approach is around a bend and downhill. Depending upon where they sit, the stop is often illegal (as they are required to be in clear view within 500 ft and the actual distance is approx 350 to 400 feet- I measured from the curve), but good luck proving it.

Sweetwater Church Road.

Operated by Paulding County Sheriff’s Dept.
Brownsville Road changes to Sweetwater Church Rd, when crossing Hwy 92, going west. The speed limit drops from 45 to an unrealistically low 40. (It’s easily a safe road at 45+.)
They use radar and can even tag you approaching from the opposite direction. Last one I saw was sitting in Sweetwater Church parking lot.
To be fair, the deputy who tagged me was quite decent, which I really appreciated.
