Alpharetta, Georgia Roadblocks
on exit ramp
Police sobriety checkpoint set up on Friday, 3/14/2014. Assume this is to catch people celebrating Saint Patty’s day early.
Huge line of cars waiting to get off at exit 11… I decided to go past and saw the flood lights and mobile command station. Police cars everywhere…
Huge operation, mobile command station, bright lights cones and cops everywhere. Looks like a scene from a movie. Screwing traffic up, way overkill.
As many as 6 vehicles are watching for drivers exiting from the parking lot from the restaurants on that corner. The are usually there on Thursday and Friday evenings from about 9:00 PM and later. You get pulled over and asked to blow. Most likely you will be taken to jail regardless of the results, charged with “DUI/Unsafe” and asked to post a $2500.00 bond. You are also told that you must appear in court with an Attorney. This is a real money maker for that city. If you go out for dinner and a glass of wine, don’t do it in Alpharetta, GA
