The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office has received numerous citizen complaints about speeding and reckless driving on Cumming Highway between Canton and Forsyth County. A crash analysis performed this year by the sheriff’s office revealed there have been 36 crashes on Cumming Highway with 21 injuries.
The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office would like to inform citizens of a safety initiative that will begin Monday April 3rd. The goal of the initiative is to the reduce excessive speeds, lower accident numbers and assist in making Cumming Highway a safer route of travel for the motoring public. Motorists traveling should expect to see more law enforcement presence on Cumming Highway and those ignoring the posted speed limited are risking getting pulled over and potentially cited. The sheriff’s office wanted to give motorists a forewarning prior to the initiative in hopes they will voluntarily comply with the posted speed limit.
