Baton Rouge, Louisiana Speed Traps
My wife entered eastbound entrance lane towards the entry ramp Bluebonnet I-10 eastbound on Thanksgiving morning. I was a passenger in the auto and at the moment the state trooper came out from her “surprise” position behind the overpass leading to the mall I observed her speedometer at certainly no greater than 50. Now she says my wife was going 62 on a 45 mph zone. Even if she was going 60 heck we are about to get on the interstate! And at best there was one other car in the area that passed us. We believe that’s the car that was going 62. Any way this isn’t protect and serve, its hey we got you pay up.
Baton Rouge PD will hide behide a group of trees at a crossover in the hwy. They use laser to target vehicles between Thomas Rd. and the railroad tracks. Look for cars in the crossover (they pull them over there), or watch for one walking out of the woods with a gun in his hand.
Coming down Stanford Ave (away from Perkins Road, towards LSU) the speed limit drops from 45 to 35. The police are usually shooting radar from the parks entrance
They sit right in the driveway of the BREC park on Oak Villa. You cant see them they hide behind the trees.
Several patrol cars parked in abandoned business parking lot. They temporarily changed the 45 mph sign to 35 and then stand out there with radar and point you over into the lot. After they are done in that location, they take the temp 35mph sign off the permanent 45 mph sign.
