Jackson County roads on the list include portions of State Route 53 (ranging from speed limits of 35-45 mph), State Route 124 (ranging from speed limits of 45-55 mph) and I-85 (70 mph), as well as Braselton Industrial Boulevard (35 mph), Chardonnay Trace (25 mph), Henry Street/Piedmont Avenue (25 mph), Jesse Cronic Road (ranging from speed limits of 35-45 mph), Pinecrest Lane (25 mph) and Zion Church Road (25 mph).
Barrow County roads on the list include State Route 124 (55 mph), State Route 211 (ranging from speed limits of 45-55 mph), and I-85 (70 mph).
In Gwinnett County, Braselton Police are authorized to detect speeders using radar on a portion of State Route 211 from the Barrow County line to State Route 347 (f 55 mph and officers are authorized to used detection devices on motorists within it.
In Hall County, Braselton Police are authorized to detect speeders using radar on State Route 347 from just east of Dunbar Road to Spout Springs Road (45 mph) and on a one-mile stretch of Spouts Springs Road west of State Route 347 (45 mph).
If a road is not on this list, the Braselton Police Department cannot use a laser to detect speeders.
