THE TOWN IS MAKING A KILLING. THE SPEED DROPS FROM 55MPH TO 40 TO 35 THEN BACK TO 40 AND TO 55MPH IT IS 1.6 MILE BETWEEN THE 55MPH SIGNS AND ONLY .7 MILE OF 35MPH. ALWAYS HAS SOMEONE PULLED OVER. if IT’S NOT A SPEED TRAP LET THEM DONATE THE MONEY TO THE BOY SCOUTS. a TICKET OUT THERE IS 210.00 DOLLARS
Watch out—–the mayor here has hired a new police chief in order to write more tickets and bring in money to a dying town…He starts Jan3,2011 and has been ordered to pull anyone over just a tad over the speed limit…I live here and am warning everyone about this now—-the speed trap is back—-the cop is full time and he will catch you—-
Repton is a small town in Alabama and the cops are waiting for out of state cars. There was an article in the Mobile Press Register about the speed traps in this town.
Repton, on Hiway 84, is sparsley populated and very small. entering from either side, it appears that it is just a cluster of houses. There is a railroad over pass on Hiway 84. Traveling from any direction you cannot see what is on the other side of the overpass. When you top the overpass, there he is and it is too late.
Speed limit drops from 55 to 35 with no deaccleration time. No tolerance any speed over speed limit and your ticketed. West bound he sits under a blind hill where the limit drops from 55 to 40 mph at the sign. East bound he sits in the Bank parking lot in a curve where the limit drops to 35 mhp ‘shoots’ you before the limit sign changes, then pulls you over after you pass the limit sign.
