Under existing law, a law enforcement officer of an incorporated municipality with less than 19,000 inhabitants is prohibited from enforcing any speed limit set by general law on any interstate highway
Existing law provides that any law enforcement officer of a municipality can enforce any speed limit set by general law inside the corporate limits of the municipality but cannot enforce the speed limit within the police jurisdiction of the municipality
This bill would delete both of these provisions
To amend Section 32-5A-171, Code of Alabama 1975, relating to maximum speed limits; to delete the provision relating to the enforcement of speed limits on interstate highways by certain municipal law enforcement officers; and to delete the provision prohibiting municipal law enforcement officers from enforcing speed limits on interstate highways within the police jurisdiction of the municipality.
