Hwy 31and Hwy 20, East side of Tennessee River Causeway

Decatur, AlabamaNov 24, 20020 Comments

Coming east on hwy 20, just before you get to the causeway the speed limit goes from 65 to 55, and you are joining up with 72 and 31 south as you go across the river. The road dips just before an overpass here and that’s where they wait. There is one small sign saying "reduce speed ahead, then it goes to 55, and there they are. Friday and Saturday nights are usually the worst. Sometimes 5 cars or more. Tends to be a real money maker for Decatur, but gives the perception of a hic town looking to get motorists. If you have an out of state tag you are more likely to get a ticket. I was driving a rental with VA plates, there were two vehicles running side by side in front of me, and one behind, but I had the out of state tag. Not to mention that the number 74 in a 55 wasn’t right. All vehicles were running less then 70.
