Atlanta’s No Cruising Law

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

I recently noticed this sign, just a few houses down from my home:

I’m assuming that the purpose of this sign is to deter any Freaknik-like activity in an otherwise quiet neighborhood.  But still, it’s a pretty strange law to have on the books.  If I decide to make a run to CVS, it’s possible that I’m going to pass the sign twice.  Does this mean that I’m in jeopardy of being fined $500?  What if I’m driving clients around the neighborhood looking at real estate?  Do I have to worry about being considered a cruiser?

Learn everything that you ever wanted to know about Atlanta City Code 150-296, aka the anti-cruising code.
