Alachua, Florida Speed Traps
South bound lane of U.S.441 from Interstate 75 to Gainesville city limits, NO Alachua city limits sign posted along hwy. Unmarked APD and black and whites
I drive thru Alachua two times a day and consistently see someone pulled over almost everyday. Most days its 5-6 vehicles but have counted 14 in one day. This began in October of 2013 and it is continuing. I have spoke to many people who have been pulled over including my husband (only once) and ironically where he was pulled over the officer was positioned on the bottem of a hill around a corner that would have made it almost impossible to even clock him where the speed limit dropped. The recent change in the speed limit signs coming into Alachua from the south I’m sure is contributing. Wondering if town is gathering funds for new police station?
If you speed in Alachua, you can receive a ticket or some form of a warning. You should obey all traffic laws regardless of where you are.
If you don’t, then you are making it unsafe for all others on the roadway.
If this was approved by the editor and you are viewing it, then they promote safe driving…..
City of Alachua PD sit off the road on north side and use radar as you are coming down the hill towards HWY 235. Many tractor trailers on this road now as the dollar general warehouse is there and the new sysco warehouses._
Alachua is getting almost as bad as Waldo, Florida
