What is a Speed Trap?
Detailed research by the U.S. Department of Commerce has shown that the safest rate of travel is a few miles per hour above the average traffic speed. Enforced speed limits set below that average speed are speed traps, sacrificing safety for revenue.
Speed Trap Round Up: Madisonville, Louisiana

Beware of this Speedtrap:
Town of Madisonville. The entire town is a speed trap
We had planned on having a family reunion dinner at a Madisonville restaurant on the river. Sadly, we moved locations and went to Covington, LA to have our party because nobody wanted to be "speed trapped to death" by this town. Everyone was afraid of getting tickets! On the way home from that dinner, WOW- Madisonville Police Officers had three cars pulled over up and down the road. This is for sure a speed trap and everyone had better be warned to stay clear of this town if they do not want to get nickeled and dimed to death by the police.
