Loganville, Georgia Speed Traps
Loganville, Ga. has gained the reputation of Speed Trap City! While having breakfast last month my wife and I watched at least 15 tickets being given out by the Local Police Dept. Besides Hwy 78. The waitress said that they had seen several tickets being given long before we sat down. The back streets behind Hardee’s is also a bad spot! On Ga. 20 headed North to Winder just after you turn off Ga. 20 is also a spot the Local Cops LOVE! BE CAREFUL while driving through Loganville, It can be VERY COSTLY!
Speed starts at 25 then 35. There is a hill right after the 25 mph sign. You have to hit your brakes coming down the hill several times. They are clocking you while they are giving other driver’s tickets at the bottom of the hill. They have no mercy for out of town drivers that are not familiar with the area.
If you’re coming into town right past McCuller Rd.(let’s say from Conyers on 20 toward Loganville) after the speed drops from 55 to 45 there are three neighborhood entrances around a very large curve that you can’t really see until you are up on them. They are Creekwood Dr. ,Creekwood Trail and Creekwood Court. On the left is the Logan’s Run subdivision and Creekwood is on the right. Once you see them as you’re coming around that large curve, it’s over…Revenue enhancement for Walton County. They aren’t there all the time, but enough to make that a trap.
This is a brazen revenue grab which bears no relation to public safety . The cops sit behind the bushes and even if you hit the brakes and barely roll through the stop as I did, they come out with floored accelerator, lights, and siren, endangering the pedestrians at the nearby bakery and dance studio much more surely than the motorists they catch. The cop was very proud that "we take payments online now". If you pay in person as I did, take cash. These thieves have an ATM located next to their pay window but it only dispenses $20 at the time and charges you $3.25 per transaction! Since my stop I have heard of numerous other people who have been stopped here. Like me, they now choose to avoid Loganville if possible and shop instead in Snellville and Monroe.
City cops sit in drive on same side of road as exit drive from school with radar. No flashing school zone signs on Lee Byrd Rd. – traffic heavy. They are just waiting for you. Got ya!!!! All speed signs few and far apart.
