What is a Speed Trap?
Detailed research by the U.S. Department of Commerce has shown that the safest rate of travel is a few miles per hour above the average traffic speed. Enforced speed limits set below that average speed are speed traps, sacrificing safety for revenue.
Speed Trap Round Up: Brantley, Alabama
School zone speed camera that issues tickets even when school is not in session
Beware of this Speedtrap:
N. Main Street/FultonAvenue SB ( School Zone) South
I was driving from Birmingham AL on US331 into Brantley Ala, the speed limit was 45, this was at 7:14 pm. I was driving 48 mph as I was going along I come up on a school zone with the lights flashing no one was at the school so I continued driving at 48mph I figured that the lights failed to switch off. I was wrong I received a notice of violation from The Brantley Speed Safety Program (camera). The weird thing is I'm told it won't be reported to my insurance co. and the Dept of Public Safety Division of Motor Vehicles. The kicker is you send your payment to Cleveland Ohio. This sounds awful fishy.
