Peachtree City, Georgia Speed Traps
Cops sit is various locations giving traffic citations for the most minor of traffic violations. The fines are excessive. Peachtree City has become a “Policing for profit city”
Speed limit is 30 MPH and is strictly enforced. Normal speed limit should be
40 MPH, which it is for the remainder of the industrial park.
You turn off of Flat Creek Dr.onto Golfview Dr.. You go up and then down a hill and approach a Stop sign at the bottom due to a road intersecting on the left. Up that road at the top of another hill sits a police car that is impossible to see until you are through the intersection. You better make a full stop at the sign. I have been pulled over more than once for “crawling”, a habit I picked up when I lived in California.
This is a 2 mile "U" shaped road that connects with Hwy. 74 at both ends. There are no houses on the road, but there is an elementary school on the north side. The speed limit is only 30 miles per hour, though your instincts tell you to go faster, especially down a hill on the south end of the road, where you will see a cop car positioned at the bottom, too late to slow down. It makes usually conscientious and safe drivers into "super speeders". I have been stopped and ticketed twice, and could have been stopped more times if the police officer wanted to.
After closing and dark, they sit at the rear entrance. Also be sure you make legal left turn, if you miss the first entrance.
Maybe the best thing to do is stay out of Peachtee City. I see more police just driving from end to end of the city, than I do diving longer distances anwhere else. Too many areas to shop, no need to go to Peachtree City. Same stores in Newnan, Fayetteville, maybe Griffin would be an option.
