Snellville, Georgia Speed Traps
Town has lowered the speed limit of 45 MPH to 35 MPH in a school zone that has a sign saying 35 MPH when flashing. This is confusing to motorist just passing through the State Road 78
Signage marked in school zone 35mph when flashing. Apparently, now the speed limit is 35mph regardless of the time of day. Originally speed limit 45mph outside of school hours. Was ticketed for going 47mph in what has always been 45mph saying it’s now 35mph. Very frustrating when you do what you believe is correct and the ones out there obviously driving like idiots are overlooked. I see multiple idiot drivers daily on their cell phones, cutting me off, and putting me in danger with their driving. Never anyone around to catch them! It’s always seems like the innocent ones get punished!
The Snellville Law Dogs sit in a private driveway on 124 north bound about 1/8th mile or less from Henry Clower Blvd intersection on the right clocking with radar all the time. If you drop off the hill just before getting here and are over the speed limit be expecting Barney to pull you over and take your hard earned money just because they can……..and they wonder why we dislike them so much.
The speed drops from 45 to 35 mph near South Gwinnett High School. There is an overhead sign that states 35 mph when flashing. The signage can confuse drivers as to what the speed is when not flashing. In addition, you will get pulled over at any time whether school is in session or not, even at midnight. At night it is difficult to see signs that post the speed limit change. Cited for going less than 15 mph over the limit and the ticket is over $300. Police cars are often lined up in this area.
From 5 am until 8 am every Friday morning, the City of Snellville sets up a trap on Highway 78 between Hwy 124 (Scenic Highway) and the High School on 78. They work about a mile area east of Scenic Highway. The speed limit was lowered to 35 from 45. BEWARE.
