Mountain City, Georgia Speed Traps
US Highway 23
This entire area between Clayton and the NC state line is one big trap, with the road changing from two to three to four lanes and the speed limit varying from 55 MPH down to 35 or 40 without warning. There is always a cop on patrol, especially in Mountain City. And he is especially there at afternoon rush hours (Friday) and weekends. I have seen many a tourist and commuter alike pulled over in this area, so be careful!
Be very careful going thru this town, this is a major highway that takes alot of people towards pigeon forge and Gatlinburge, so the cops in this town don’t have to much to do three cops on the whole force. whole town is less than 500 people so you got to make money were you can. this town is only about a mile long it is on a major four lane where anywhere else on this road speed limit is 55, but at this town speed limt drops from 55 to 25 right as you round the cruve coming into town and ‘BAM’ they got you before you even knew what hit you, and fines in this town are very steep. they normaly sit at the pure gas station as you come to town
