Marietta, Georgia Speed Traps
Windy Hill and I-75 just past Leland Dr.
Going down Windy Hill Road, The officer sits in the Pappadeaux Parking lot which is 15 feet above road level and behind signs and bushes. Officer can’t see more than 70 feet down the road and uses stationary radar, The restaurant turns off all the lights in the parking lot when they close so it very dark up there. I doubt that Pappadeaux is letting the officer do this during business hours but they close about 10:00PM so be careful, Cops like sitting in the dark
Post Oak Tritt Rd between Johnson Fry Rd and Chestnut Ridge
The school zone stretches from just after the intersection of Johnson Ferry Rd and Post Oak Tritt Rd. There are about 4 neighborhoods, a church parking lot, and Hightower Trail Middle School. At night, there is a Sheriff’s Deputy that frequents the middle school entrance/parking lot who clocks people flying down Post Oak Tritt. During school hours, either Cobb County Police or Cobb County Sheriff (mostly Cobb County Police) do radar or laser enforcement at any of the neighborhood entrances. I know because I live in one of those neighborhoods and ALWAYS see police officers or sheriff’s deputies clocking folks.
Sandy Plains Rd @ Running Fox Ct
A cop will sit at the end of Running Fox Ct, on the corner of Sandy Plains Rd. This is between Wigley Rd and Hwy 92 (north of Shallowford Rd). This subdivision is near the bottom of a big hill, and the location lets the cop catch drivers both northbound and southbound coming down a hill. There are trees in the median which obscure the view from the top of the hill also, so it’s hard to see the cruiser parked there. Very active during rush hour times, especially for northbound motorists.
Stop sign on Robinson Rd at Fuller Park
At the stop sign on Robinson between Old Canton and Roswell Rd, a cop likes to sit and ticket motorists who do not come to a truly complete stop at the stop sign. Advice: Stop for a moment, let the car rock back and then proceed.
New Salem Rd. between Stilesboro and Burnt Hickory.
On New Salem Road, between Stilesboro and Burnt Hickory there are two dips (or small hills) in the road, making the motorcycle cops impossible to see coming from either Stilesboro or from Burnt Hickory until you top the hill. At that point they’ve already clocked you. Several motorcycle cops sit at the back entrance of the Barrett Greene subdivision. They stop cars coming from both directions. Several people who live in that subdivision have gotten tickets returning home. On one of their good days they will have 5 or 6 cars pulled over and will be writing tickets.
