Route 95 South

Elberta, AlabamaJul 08, 20072 Comments

Route 95 is an open country road, east of Elberta. The local police patrol this area more than the main highways. The road does not have a posted speed limit for 5 miles or so as I’ve afterward researched. Stopped by a local and given a ticket for 64mph in an zone he said was 45mph. It was on an early Sunday am, in a rush, using a strange truck. Being out of state (NH) am unfamiliar to the road, never saw any speed signs, I thought I was going about 55mph. Furthermore the truck had 225K miles on it and don’t know the accuracy. Pitting a commercial worn speedometer against a "certified" gun is a bogus situation. I’ve been producing quality control products for 26 years to major companies and know about manufacturing limits. It’s all a speed trap designed to get revenue for a town. I’ll fight it all.

Police hide behind buildings. They state radar readings in excess of 10mph of true mph.

I have been stopped twice in Elberta, each time going 45 in a 35 mile area. County road 20 turns off 98 in the center of Elberta. It is mostly farm area. I was stopped on a Sunday evening coming home from church, going 45 and it cost me $100.

Elberta police have a tradition of being heavy-handed with speeders. The limit is 35mph throughout the town; you can get away with 40.
