Recent Speed Limit Increases Across Metro Atlanta

I-75 exit Windy-Hill rd.There has been a recent increase in the speed limit across 95 miles of interstate and highways across Metro Atlanta. These changes have raised the speed limit up to 10 miles per hour in certain areas and affect 7 different counties in the Metro-Atlanta area.

In Cobb County, the speed limit has been raised from 55 miles per hour to 65 miles per hour on I-75 from Howell Mill Rd. up to Windy Hill, which is approximately a 3- mile stretch. These changes were made once the DOT considered average speeds, crash history, and traffic volume.

Among the 6 other counties experiencing a change are Clayton, DeKalb, Fulton, Douglas, Gainesville, Gwinnett, and Rockdale Counties.

If you have been caught speeding, even with the new limits, The Semrau Law Firm handles traffic-ticket cases, including speeding, in ALL Metro-Atlanta courts. While speeding appears to be a minor offense, it can result in hundreds of dollars in fines as well as increased insurance premiums. It’s always a good idea to consult with a lawyer before paying the fine.
