This is long overdue. Does any parts of heavy populated urban and suburban North Atlanta have speed that low.

Most people do 65 - 70 on that road anyway.

Another notorious speed trap in the northern suburbs is GA-316. Its 55 for the limited access sections then 65 for the sections with traffic lights after you leave Lawrenceville. Sounds like they have vehicular safety totally in mind.

They are bolder than I. GCPD and Snellville love some Ronald Reagan for ticketing.

Whatís the difference? There is ZERO speed limit enforcement on metro Atlanta freeways that I can tell. The changeable limits on 285 are just laughable, why bother? Yet people wonder why there are endless crashes greatly contributing to the traffic problems here. Iíve lived and driven in most major US metros and I just donít understand it here. Itís like itís never occurred to people that if we can control speeds and reckless driving we can greatly cut back on the constant crashes and subsequent jams.

I too have wondered what was on their mind when they blew off that money on the VSL system on the topend. If they drop to 35 and traffic around me is doing 70...I am definitely not slowing down to 35.

That and I dont see how they could easily enforce them given they could change between the point the officer last saw the sign and the driver passes the officer.

But yeah. There is no enforcement in metro Atlanta. I believe it plainly costs too much to enforce the highways and is also dangerous (officers are not immune to speeders or inattentive drivers, plenty of them have died while writing tickets to speeders) They would rather sit back and collect a super speeder instead (85 MPH +).
