Police Dealing With Motor Vehicles On Carrollton's Pedestrian Greenbelt

Carrollton Police reminding residents that it is unlawful to drive a motorized vehicle on the Carrollton Greenbelt pedestrian path, after having to issue a citation to a 19-year old Villa Rica man who thought it would be fun to drive his Ford Mustang around the portion near Hobbs Farm.
 
Police say they have had several reports of autos, motorcycles and golf carts on the path recently.
 
Most of the complaints we get are about people getting on at Hobbs Farm and heading over to Stewart’s Creek that way,” C.P.D. Captain Shannon Cantrell told WLBB Radio. "The teen that we caught, it was around 4:00 in the afternoon."
 
His biggest concern is that someone on a bike or walking— and wearing headphones or a phone-headset— will not be expecting to meet a moving vehicle on the path.
 
Police are using cameras to monitor the greenbelt.
 
“We have put cameras covertly out there just to kind of watch for any negative activity,” he said. “We have had reports of the vehicles on the path (and other things), so we did put cameras out there to monitor that.”
 
Those caught driving on the Greenbelt face a minimum $125 fine.
