Where am I not?
Has anyone seen any speed enforcement on the express lanes yet? I have only driven on it a handful of times both ways. I can see wider areas where an officer might hangout but have not seen anything. I can just see them putting up speed cameras to help subsidize the massive cost of building that thing. I could also see them "timing" the cars as they get on and off then calculate an average moving speed, because they have cameras everywhere taking pictures of tags and windshield stickers.

Thanks

The 575/75 express lane is so small and narrow I don't think they could sit there and monitor it. With the barriers being so high I don't even see how they could get your speed other than being in the lane and that's almost impossible. The express lane going to 285 is pretty wide but I haven't seen anything yet, but I don't drive that way much anymore.

The 85N/S only cost them cameras /sensors since it was the HOV lane before. I think its a rip off having to pay to use a road that your taxes paid for but i moved to a place where my drive didnt involve the interstate.

In front of you but behind a Rabbit
I drive the Express Lanes two to three times a week and have yet to see any Enforcement yet (knock on wood).

Never seen any on 75. I don’t think they can enforce speed electronically in GA. Plus we are paying to be on it, give us a break.

I've been curious about this as well. Glad to know there doesn't seem to be any current automated enforcement, though I agree it seems like it would be unfortunately easy for them to add something in. Twice now I have seen GSP shooting Ka at the merge where 316 meets the express lane on 85 South, but I doubt they were there for the express lane specifically, likely just checking 85 traffic.

I drive the express on 85 two or more times a week. I can assure you if they are monitoring it electronically they are not sending out the tickets. I believe GA ruled speed cams illegal a while back as well but I would not take that as fact.

They are monitor electronically. They even have systems that detect number of people in the car.

Reminds me of the early days of the Harris County Toll Road. If your expressway is anything like that, it will be lightly patrolled but when it is it'll be GSP and probably multiple units. Waze should ferret them out.
