State Highway 231 South near Arab
Arab is trying to increase revenue to pay for their new radar guns. They also put people on probation that cannot pay, until it is paid off and they charge a whopping $35 a month in addition to the charge. No questions asked, they charge you even if you can produce the insurance card or the tag receipt you could not find on the day you were pulled over and ticketed for not having one of these items (could not find because you were so nervous does not matter to them).
