HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Bob Wallace Avenue in Huntsville is being called 'Talladega' in an online complaint under SeeClickFix on WAFF.com.

People are frustrated with speeding on Bob Wallace. It's an area where two school zones are less than a mile apart. 

"Nobody seems to care about this apparently. I watched traffic flying through the Morris Elementary zone this morning," a comment posted on SeeClickFix said. 

Lt. Stacy Bates says officers patrol zones for both Morris Elementary and Westlawn Middle School. 

"We have officers assigned to all of our high traffic school zones that have a lot of kids crossing and have a lot of vehicle traffic. We make sure we have officers assigned to those zones both morning and afternoon," said Lt. Stacy Bates.  

"When the police do respond they sit out in plain sight. What good is that?" another user stated under SeeClickFix.

The Huntsville police had the answer stating that it is policy. 

"We're not trying to hide and catch anybody doing anything. That's just the way our policy has been written for years when it comes to our radar enforcement. We're out. We're visible. When we're running radar you can actually see the police car," said Lt. Bates.  

Huntsville police say they will enforce this area.

You could face a $179.00 fine for driving too fast when the speed limit changes from 40 MPH to 25 MPH.
