Gretna, Louisiana Speed Traps
White unmanned SUV with yellow lights on the roof.. Commercial outfit on hire to Grenta. They are using video tape to ticket everything over 40 in a 35 !!! They mail a 147.50 ticket in about 5 days…
As you make the bend on Lapalco Blvd near Marlene Dr. a Gretna cop will park his car in the entrance of the U-turn lane. This car is completly hidden until you almost arrive at the U-turn. The car is shrouded by the bend, and trees over the U-turn.
Jefferson Parish sets up a Radar Trap along Wall Blvd in the morning and afternoon hours. This road is traveled mostly by locals traveling to work, or taking their children to the local schools. From the Fire Station to Lapalco Blvd there are 3 school zones. A private school on Wall Blvd is heavely traveled, and heavely enforced. Set up is in the Fire Station, or near the fence of the Academy. Further down Wall is a large playground with plenty of hiding spaces.
This Trap is operated by Jefferson Parish Sherriff Office. The officer parks on Willowbrook Dr. and radars cars along Wall Blvd. They are caught as they make the slight bend on Wall. Usually several police cars are there writing tickets. This is a highly profitable spot, lots of traffic, and well hidden.
Police cars or motorcycles hide in the U-turn lane near the entrance of the cemetary. They are unseen due to high guard rails along the canal between the lanes.
