Dry Prong, Louisiana Speed Traps
Bus stop on the highway. They expect you to be prepared to stop before the bus puts on its lights. Beware the $250 fine if you don’t see the lights until you are already in the process of passing.
The speed limit drops from a posted 55MPH to 35 MPH. You had better be doing 35 at that first sign.
The north city limit sign were the speed limit drops to 45mph is the worst trap. The entire town is a speed trap!!
HUNTERS BEWARE!!! Coming home from hunting at the Jackson-Beinville Game Reserve near Jonesboro we were caught in the speedtrap in Dry Prong. Many Louisiana hunters pass through this town since the main state highway cuts right through it. Many also conduct business in this town during deer hunting season, buying gas and other necessities needed for hunting, and paying taxes on these purchases. A marked white Crown Vic was located the local Baptist Church on the north side of town. The fine was $115.00.These red neck,sleepy towns are like bizzards,it was on Thanksgiving Day,it just happens that this is the day that many out of town hunters are going and coming from hunting.The speed limit drops to 35 with no warning.
Right in the middle of the Kisatchie National Forest, rural setting, does not look like a 35mph zone. White Crown Vic parked just north of village. Fine is $110.00.
