Ford City, Alabama Speed Traps
There is a stretch of highway in colbert county called River Road. If you travel this road that runs from Lawrance county into Colbert County then you have seen the State Troopers that patrol here. There more accidents on the U.S. highways that run through this area than on this county road which is straight as an arrow for 10 miles. I found out the local steak resturant lets these guys eat free. There have been times that I have seen 4 trooper cars at this one resturant out in the middle of nowhere at lunch time. This happens almost on a daily basis. Who is protecting the other highways in this area while all of these guys sit around for an hour or so BSing while we pay them. They will patrol on River Road because it is close to the resturant and the speed limit is 45. So if your on this road near lunch or dinner and you dont see any trooper cars at the resturant at the four way stop, you better drive the speed limit, which is too low for the highway.
