US Highway 231 near North bound before Alabama state line
Heading northbound on Hwy 231 the speed limit changes form 65mph to 55mph to 45mph to 35mph in less then 1/2 mile & then change back to 65mmp in less then 1/2 mile. Signs are posted only on right side of the road which you are blinded to if your in the left lane and cars are beside you. There are no signs posted warning you to slow down ahead and signs are not posted on boths sides of the road so both lanes can see them in traffic. Your eyes are watching curve in the road on the left side and by the time you see the 35mph sign the police are sitting across the bridge just past where the sign turns to 35mph and pull you over. Tickets are written to only those who are pulled over. Citations are written up as though you are going 65 in a 35 to escalate the fines. Slamming on your brakes might slow you down to avoid a ticket but could cause a crash hazzard if every motorist that was traveling on this heavly traveled road started slamming on the brakes to decelerate to speed limits every 1/8 of a mile. It is obvious to that the intention here is not to slow you down to a safe speed but to fine tourist returning home. Then to make matters worse they offer every incentive to pay & not fight.
Reduced Fines if you take a 4 hour class online with no points, etc. But increase fees and reporting if you request a hearing!
I have not had a speeding ticket in over 25 years and drive a company vehical. This speed trap could cause me to lose my company vehical driving privlages and cause my insurance to go up for 3 to 5 years.
