Interstate 20

Pell City, AlabamaAug 25, 20082 Comments

Under Title 32 in Alabama traffic law, cities under 19,000 have no legal right to enforce traffic laws on the interstate. Yesterday while coming back from Atlanta, a Pell City police car was targeting off an entrance ramp on Interstate 20. No matter what you are told by police, city hall, or a lawyer, do not accept a guilty verdict on an Interstate traffic ticket from Pell City. Appeal it if you have a guilty verdict or asked for a plea bargin. It is in black and white they have no legal right to enforce traffic laws on the interstate.


do not know where you get your info but if a officer is also a sworn county deputy then they can and will work the interstate

Local police are permitted to issue citations for infractions such as: improper lane change, improper equipment(tail lights out, no tag light, burned out headlight, etc.), following too closely, not having headlights on when it's raining, etc.. From what I've read, they are only restricted in the speeding ticket department. Again.....that's from what I've read & talked to local Officers about. Although, many times they will sit on the ramps just to "scare" people into slowing down.
