Berry Drive near South Carroll Street

Villa Rica, GeorgiaMar 08, 20083 Comments

If you turn off of 61N and go behind the Wal-Mart on South Carroll Street and then turn R. on Berry past the Wildwood Apartments, you go down a hill on Berry. The posted speed is 35, but you have to brake to keep your speed at 35. The city police sit anywhere on the road or in the woods. It is a wooded area with one subdivision there, so it isn’t like you are in a populated area. This is a cut-through to I20, so I’m sure people speed, but 35 seems too slow.

The police officer that ticketed a friend was so far back in the underbrush she didn't see him until he was walking his motorcycle out. She got $1000 dollar fine, 24 hours in jail, and a year of community service. Be slow on Berry Drive. You will need your brakes to maintain 35 on the hill.

Wow I find that a year of community service-exactly how many hours is that, 24hrs jail, and $1000 fine is hard to believe. Seems that maybe your friend isnt exactly innocent driver with a clean record. I have driven this section many times with no problems whatsoever. BTW the DOT is the one that sets the speed limits not the police department.
