“Notorious school zone 5.5 miles east of Jasper,AL.
As of August 24, 2012 all Walker county schools will resume and the “School Zone” approximately 5.5 miles east of Jasper
AL. Will be active again and the AL State Troopers will begin “revenue generation” as they do each year since this stupid thing was put in. Speed drops from 55 mph. to 35 mph. and they’ll write a ticket for 37 mph. Also they (the State Troopers) have been known to force motorists off the road when turning across the median to chase someone. One of the gold Chevy Tahoe’s ran my wife onto the shoulder last year and she almost struck a guard rail. The troopers usefully marked Crown Vic’s and Chargers as well as black and silver unmarked Chargers and Chevy Tahoe’s. This place is a money-maker and the school is almost 2 miles north of the highway. This is now AL 118 it was formerly U.S. 78. Just thought I’d let everyone know.
