Euharlee, Georgia Speed Traps
They sit in the exit driveway of the new primary school and as you are heading out of town on Euharlee rd. there is a curve right before the school. They really like it at night when you can’t see around the curve at all.
The police will sit in the dark where you can only see them if you are looking extremely hard. Most people are not able to see them while driving.
Officers are parked on the side of the road and run radar in both directions. Most of the time their vehicles are barely visible. Officers are requesting to search most vehicles that are stopped without cause. Officers have competition with one another in reference to the number of tickets that are wrote. Officers have a ticket quota to fulfill, Even though it supposedly does not exist.
Entire tiny city of Euharlee is a speed trap. Main road is 2-lane and 45 mph but is very straight and you want to go faster. Police dept. has around 5 vehicles. Side roads are 35 mph straight, flat, barren country roads and that’s where they’ll really get you. When I lived there I would leave for work at 4:30 am some days and they are out there – lights off, just waiting for your "one false move". To their credit, the rural area has subdivisions now and the need for safety is present. However, the speed limits are at least 5mph lower than you would think they should be for such a rural area and I’m sure this is used to drive city revenue (not much else out there). Please be careful!
