Also note that Coweta County is in the plan­ning stages for a pos­si­ble new Wal-Mart on Hwy 154, just north of I‑85. There will be addi­tion­al safe­ty con­cerns with increased traf­fic flow on Hwy 154 if this comes about.

I’ve had some good ideas sub­mit­ted regard­ing con­trol­ling speed­ing in the neigh­bor­hood. Unfortunately sev­er­al of the ideas can­not be imple­ment­ed due to County ordi­nances on the use of traf­fic calm­ing devices on pub­lic road­ways. Since cer­tain peo­ple are reck­less­ly speed­ing through the neigh­bor­hood (e.g. not a few MPH over inci­den­taly, by acci­dent, but rather 15–20 MPH over the post­ed 25 MPH lim­it), I’m con­sid­er­ing post­ing reports with the vehi­cle descrip­tion, tag num­ber, etc on this web site to iden­ti­fy out­ra­geous and fre­quent vio­la­tors. I’m also research­ing a few oth­er sug­ges­tions for fea­si­bil­i­ty and poten­tial for impact. If you have any ideas or sug­ges­tions, please con­tact me.

Here are some web sites regard­ing reduc­ing speed­ing in neighborhoods:
