Deridder, Louisiana Speed Traps
No posted speed limit in area. Up and down speed postings along Hwy 190 W. Leaving a gas station area along an out-in-the-country road. Looked in rearview mirror to see police lights. Unmarked SUV (gray). Two females posing as cops in full body armor. Was accelerating onto open country road. No traffic. They came out of nowhere.
Hwy 12 outside Deridder. Once you cross the Texas/Louisiana state line speed limit is posted.Once you get way outside Derrider nothing is posted until you get to the cut off to Dequinncy. Best to do about 45 mph.
Approaching DeRidder on Hwy 27 North, there is a hill just past the city limits sign. Just beyond the hill. on the left shoulder of the road, the city police park under a low hanging shade tree. Once you’re over the hill, it’s too late if you are going barely over the posted limit of 55mph. Watch out!
Leaving DeRidder, going south to Lake Charles by the Chevrolet car lot, often there is a police car checking speeds. It is a 35 mile per hour speed limit, but since there aren’t many businesses, it is easy to go 40-45 mph.
Local city police and sheriff dept. cars park at the "old" K-Mart parking lot by the Park Motel waiting for cars to "run" the red light.
