Macon, Georgia Speed Traps
Where I75 and I475 split, the speed limit goes from 70 to 55.
Though it is nearly impossible for LE to make traffic stops in this stretch, the city has installed a photo radar tower at this exit. Be very careful – very few people obey the speed limits here, though they really should. There are two exits within a few hundred feet, with a Lot of traffic entering and exiting the interstate.
Travelling south on I-75, make certain to travel the speed limit of 55 after passing the US 80 / Eisenhower Pkwy exit. Between US 80 and Rocky Creek Road exit is a long curve to the right. Macon Police, Bibb Sheriff Deputies, and sometimes State Patrol wait on the right-hand shoulder for speeders coming around the curve. Because of the nature of the landscape, radar & laser detectors do not pickup – by the time you see them, it’s too late. Note that there is also a photo radar tower At the Rocky Creek Road exit.
Keep to posted speed limits passing through Macon, GA, either on bypass I475 or on I 75. Stick to bypass but don’t speed!
Police park in parking lot of big church on the corner normally after club hours any day of the week. Just thought this should be on here as well.
