Heflin, Alabama Speed Traps
the state trooper will ticket you for 5 miles over are the city city police .
Starting at the Alabama state line on I-20 continuing to just west of Highway 21 on I-20. State troopers, city and county police have dropped the speed limit from 70 mph to 55 mph. I see as many 10 vehicles pulled over.
Unmarked p/u truck on a bridge taking pictures of all westbound traffic….up to 10 chase cars….ongoing activity. As you leave GA the speed is 70mph….at the AL border there is a temporary lighted sign with small letters indicating 55mph, but difficult to see because the sun is reflecting off the sign and you are driving 70mph speed. One expects this type of sign to provide roadwork activity info. No construction activity in either direction…go figure. 70mph is posted later in the Anniston, AL area on the same interstate hwy.
A decoy car will be siting on the overpass very often now due to the speed limit change to 55 entering Alabama. It is either an SUV, F-250, or blue car all unmarked. They do this at least once a month but right now it is almost every weekend. They usually have at least 10 officers working this area so watch out for this sorry act of our law enforcement.
There is wooded area and there is a small clearing where the State and Local officials sit and wait. About a mile up I-20 there is a perfect place to stop you and give you ticket. They profile expensive cars with out of state plates.
