Ashville, Alabama Speed Traps
The speed limit becomes 25 MPH near the Courthouse square in Ashville. However, there is only one such sign that indicates this. Drivers along 231 have every reason to expect the speed limit to be 35 because there are no signs indicating it is 25. Cops in Ashville are like in many small towns, if they know you and like you they will wave to you as you drive by going 10+ MPH over the speed limit, but if they think you are from out of town, they will take advantage of most people not realizing the speed limit reduction zone exists.
State Troopers usually sit in the Emergency Vehicle only road hidden behind trees.
