Lake Charles, Louisiana Speed Traps
The speed limit between Sale and McNeese is 25 mph on school days, and university police officers regularly patrol the area during daylight hours.
Westbound entering Lake Charles speed limit reduces from 70 to 60.Troopers park in median behind bridge pillars and cant be seen until your right on them
Blue dodge durango the new bigger models look like a civialian car with no roof bar lights very hard to identify, sits on right side shoulder like a stalled vehicle.
The stretch of Common from Petro Point Dr. to Tank Farm Rd. is under heavy construction, justifying the 35MPH speed limit for the safety of construction workers and due to the unpredictable quality of the road surface. However, though the speed limit picks up from 35MPH to 45MPH at McNeese St. as you’re headed south on Common, it reduces to 35 again just past Contour Dr. (about 1500 ft. down from McNeese St.), and remains so only for southbound traffic for about 5000 ft. down to Petro Point Dr. and beyond. At least 4 law enforcement entities like to hide their units behind the safety barrels just short of Dolby Rd. during the day, ‘policing’ an area that, in my opinion, is in little need of ‘speed safety enforcement’. Do we really need a 5k ft. ’45MPH-35MPH safety buffer’?? It’s strictly a ridiculous revenue generation trap.
Driving south on nelson road, right south the mobile home park inbetween Ham Reid road and Gauthier road. before the hospital, officers like to hide on the right side of the road in a vacant lot hiding behind the bushes in some cases.
