Glencoe, Alabama Speed Traps
Glencoe has a state trooper who hides back of tne Jet -Pep on 431 watching the stop sign at the rail road crossing, also hides at the City’s lot on Main St with radar. He’s in his state car question… is he writing state tickets or Glencoe City tickets? Or is Glencoe paying him for his extra revenue? If either is true could be in violation of state law. This trooper resides in Glencoe and friends with City Hall and the new chief. This troper in all the neighborhoods in Glencoe limits. Looks as though this is more important than the state highways.
Troopers constantly monitor vehicles because of the several different speed limits through that short stretch. Locals get a free pass but others beware!
All of Alabama Counties Plus out of State Plates are Stopped tries to get permission to search the vech.
Located on U.S. 431 Northbound (Chastain Boulevard)entering Glencoe just south of Sims Street and past an abandoned building on the right. The speed limit is 45 miles per hour in Glencoe. Police sit in the median at select times each day. I never got a ticket there but know some people who have seen cars pulled over there.
Where the speed limit starts changing (from 45-55-65 or back down depending on the direction you are going) both state troopers and city police sit and wait for drivers to either speed up too soon or not slow down at all. Love to pull over out of towners (especially drivers from Georgia).
