School zone, North end of town between E Mill St and Fulton.

If you are driving on 331 through the town of Brantley Alabama, beware of a little trick they are playing on motorists.

At the North end of town there is a school zone. There are no signs to let you know when the school zone ends.
Approximately 150 feet where they say the 25 mph zones ends is a 35 mph sign. There is one at both ends of this zone.

They have the radar aimed at 75 feet past this 35 mph sign. Just enough time for you to get your vehicle back up to 35 mph.
Then they take your picture that includes the 35 mph sign behind your vehicle and send you a $80 speeding ticket.

I made the mistake of increasing my speed when I thought the speed limit changed back to 35 mph.
If the zone does not end for another 150 feet, then that is where the speed limit sign should be.
Since there is no way to really know what the city considers the speed limit to be you have two choices.
#1 Drive 20-25 mph all the way through their jurisdiction or
#2 Avoid the town completely, which is what I will be doing in the future.
