RUSSELL COUNTY ( PHENIX CITY ) AL: This morning Deputies with the Russell County Sheriff Department decided to impede the flow of traffic on Highway 431.
The south bound lanes of Highway 431 were funneled into one lane of traffic. The Sheriff had south bound traffic backed up for miles.
The Deputies had cars working the persons who looked suspicious. The deputies would pull the vehicles over. There was a deputy with binnouclars looking at the people in the cars.
Some have stated on FACEBOOK, if you had nothing to hide then no issue. However the issue is, on a major roadway with heavy traffic the Russell County Sheriff was impeding the flow of traffic no reason.
Some will argue, the roadblocks save lives. However, there is no connection studies between the roadblocks and traffic safety of the motoring public.
Four lane roads are for traveling. In Phenix City, traffic was extremely heavy and a lot of cars on the road making traveling already at a creep. Then when you get south of Phenix City, The Sheriff impedes the traffic flow.
The Russell County Sheriff should be fired if he keeps this up on major roads.
