Lafayette, Louisiana Speed Traps
RedFlex Red Light and Speed Camera. The City of Lafayette is a RedFlex Speed Trap with numerous camera locations and RedFlex Speed Vans.
There is a van sitting on the right hand side of Highway 49 going towards Willow.
State troopers claim that people are going at least 5 miles faster than what you are actually marking on your speedometer. (I have a brand new vehicle with factory tires.)
The van is usually parked after dusk on South College Ext between Kaliste Saloom and Pinhook. (This is the road that Nimbeaux’s restaurant is on.) It is parked on the right hand side of the road in a dark patch by the speed limit sign. You are unable to see it until almost right on top of it.
If you are heading up Commission (where the FedEx and UPS main offices are located), towards Pinhook, the van is usually parked directly across the street on Pinhook. It appears to be directing its radar towards traffic on Pinhook headed towards the Youngsville Highway.
