Iberville Parish, Louisiana Speed Traps
Trooper will park on the 18 mile bridge (in shoulder) and will open his trunk. Motorists think that it is a broken vehicle when in fact it is the trooper hiding behind the open trunk with the radar to get you. Try to do the speed limit there although 90% drive way over the 60 MPH limit posted anyways.
Troopers sit at bottom of hill coming off of the 18 mile bridge going east bound just as speed is raised from 60 MPH to 70 MPH.
Even if you are in heavy traffic and moving at the same speed as everyone else, you will be singled out by LASER as soon as the cop has finished writing up his previous sucker. Watch for changing speed limits and a truck parked on the right warning about stopped traffic. $185 fine.
As your coming off the atchafayala basin bridge, there’s usually a State Trooper waiting at the first exit. The speed limit for the bridge is 60MPH, but the 70MPH sign is less than an eighth of a mile off the bridge and it can be very confusing. The trooper will get you for 70 in the 60 and typically targets in-state drivers.
Iberville Parish deputies hide along this road in total darkness especially when there is a function at nearby L.S.U. They do not use Radar and always have two separate units so that there is two officers’ word against the drivers. Speed limit signs are absent on this stretch of road and speed limit is 55 MPH when most Louisiana highways are 65 MPH. Police grossly exaggerate speed violations. A 60 MPH cruise control setting netted a 73 MPH violation.
