Henderson, Louisiana Speed Traps
Officer at the base of the overpass Mile Post 117 shooting radar as you come down the Bridge. The speed limit is 60 MPH posted signs. But as the car comes down the bridge it speeds up due to gravity. Try to slow down while coming down the overpass with getting rear ended.
Patrol cars sit sometimes in the open, but most times hidden in or near the trees, behind bridge rails or in curves between the Henderson/Cecilia exit and the I-10 Basin Bridge both east and west bound.
Village of Henderson Police, who can’t even access the interstate from their village limits, write anything over 60 on I-10. The basin is 60 but they extended the 60MPH zone about 3 miles before the basin.
Henderson police hide all the way through town, but especially where the speed limits drop. They will stop you for 2 miles over, and write you for 5 over. They work in pairs, and if you are from out of town, they know you won’t make a trip to contest it in court. Watch out especially from the catholic church, to Pat’s on the Bayou. They even go on the levee road, which is outside their jurisdiction.
Exiting the Basin Bride local officers will sit in wait for vehilce coming up to speed from 60 mph to 7- mph. Local jurisdiction begins at the end of the bridge, but tickets are written an in excess of 60 mph (the basin bridge speed).
