J.R. Allen Parkway near US Highway 280

Phenix City, AlabamaMay 09, 20050 Comments

This trap is fairly frequent, and is located near the end of "J.R. Allen Pkwy" a.k.a. Highway 80 West just before it ties into U.S. Highway 280. Typically the law enforcement is an Alabama State Patrol car (their cars are mostly silver-colored with some blue trim), rather than a local Phenix City police officer. The speed limit changes from 65mph to 55mph in anticipation of the tie in with U.S. Highway 280. The officer will typically be located in the median so that he/she can "clock" traffic travelling west and east-bound. Though, I have never seen an officer pull someone over, I know from personal experience that the Highway Patrol are more rigid in their enforcement of the speed limits than the local Phenix City police are.
