Daleville, Alabama Speed Traps
In the morning when people are going to work on Ft. Rucker the Daleville PD always has someone pulled over.
There is no speed limit posted until you reach Donnell Rd where its posted as 45 MPH. State Law states that if the speed is not posted its presumed to be 45MPH. Daleville PD patrols this area like hawks trying to catch someone doing 45MPH so they can write a ticket. The speed limit is posted on State Rte 134 on the other side of State Rte 85, so if you turned onto State Rte 134 you are getting a ticket for obeying state law. Daleville is a little podunk one horse town that runs a rigged Kangaroo Court. In Alabama everything runs off the good ole boy system, not the law. If you contest the ticket, you will be found guilty, no matter what facts you present. Plus you will also have to pay insanely high court costs of almost $200 in addition to your ticket which is due immediately or they threaten to throw you in jail for contempt of court. It’s a moneymaking scheme to extort money from motorists. it would be illegal, except for the fact that the police and the city court are running the show.
Where the median covered in trees is just east of Daleville, a cop will hide in the trees on one side or the other looking for people going faster than the posted 65MPH.
This stretch between 84 and Old 134 drops to 30MPH and a cop will usually camp out looking for an easy pick off. 84 is 65MPH and Old 134 is 45MPH, but the little connector is only 30MPH so it’s an easy target.
Only during school zone periods, they will pull you over for 30MPH or more during school zone and the cop is always there.
