Traveling either east or west on Hwy 82E, you will most likely encounter Pickens County Sheriff, Gordo Police, or an Alabama Hwy Patrol vehicle. This and Reform, AL as seen in the description above are notorious for being major speed traps, especially at night. And they are not pleasant to deal with at all. The towns revenue is almost entirely obtained from speeding tickets, and they don’t hesitate to give them out, even for 3-5 over the posted speed limit. Beware!
