Madison, Alabama Speed Traps
Madison Police hide behind the small white church building on the east side of the road just north of Mill Road and in the parking lot of the brick church on the west side of the road during morning and evening commutes. Both locations are well concealed. This is a rural farm road with fields and pastures on both sides for much of its length that has a 25 mph residential speed limit that requires a mandatory court appearance before the city court judge.
Police are everywhere throughout Madison 24/7 on a special detail. Madison is ticket city!
Madison City Police Officers frequently run traffic radar on Brown’s Ferry from Hughes to County Line. It is most common for them to run radar on Brown’s Ferry in between Wall Triana (Sullivan) and County Line. The speed limit is 35mph, and this is a very reasonable speed where the road is twisty. However there are long straight stretches where traffic can safely and reasonably get up to 50mph on both ends (near County Line and Wall Triana/Sullivan). This is usually where Madison PD Traffic Enforcement Units run their "Moving Radar."
A Huntsville PD vehicle parks on the Hwy 20 overpass and "shoots" the Westbound lanes of I-565. Only the roof and windows of the vehicle can be seen from the interstate. The angles are such that it is very difficult to see the HPD vehicle on the overpass. In the early morning, when the Sun is low, it is nearly impossible to see it. On the exit ramp, out of sight, are 5-6 HPD chase vehicles.
