Scottsboro, Alabama Speed Traps
Coming from the Park the speed drops from 35 to 25 on county park rd. after crossing the bridge at edge of Rosewood Manor assisted living , Police get by the side of nearby church sign with radar aimed at the bridge !
Speed limit is 30. Easy to go over without realizing it. Cop waiting in Armory parking lot.
30 mph. Very easy to go over limit on the long straight headed north away from Piggly Wiggly. Cop waiting right after the curve. No time to slow down.
Cops will wait on the median just past the bridge to catch speeders coming into town. A second bridge is being built and a sign indicates that fines are doubled for speeders.
Right before US-72 becomes a non-divided highway (right after the AL-279 overpass between Scottsboro and Hollywood), Cops will wait in the median right on the other side of the overpass from Scottsboro trying to catch speeders speeding up on the way out of town. The speed limit of 65 is reasonable (most people do 70-75) – just wait until you get to the other side of Hollywood before speeding back up.
