Bossier City, Louisiana Speed Traps
State police love to sit on the upgrade of I-20 east bound and west bound lanes. They like to sit on the bridge of Haughton exit and radio the speed to a patrol unit down the highway.
The police like to sit in the median so they can gun in each direction.
Speed limit on the bridge is 35, but as you are coming off into Bossier, There is a motorcycle cop sitting on the left waiting because before you even get off the bridge the speed limit drops to 25.
There is a school zone there that is 15 mph. There is no school there. Just kids walking home in the road. Motorcycle cops will write you up for as little as 2 miles over the limit. In a school zone, the fine ends up being almost $ 500 by the time you go to court and finish probation and finish paying up. You can’t just pay the fine, you have to go to court with court costs.
Melrose is a short cut running east and west between Airline drive and Benton road. Its a residential street with about four stop signs and the speed set at 35 mph. I travel this route several times a week and many times there is a Bossier city PD parked on one of the adjacent streets shooting radar and checking for people running stop signs. Make sure you don’t speed and come to a complete stop!
Be sure to stick to the speed limit on this stretch of road; it’s patrolled for speed regularly.
