Mandeville, Louisiana Speed Traps
If you’re driving from Mandeville to Covington on Hwy 190, you might encounter a State Trooper shooting radar where the speed limit drops from 55 MPH to 45 MPH, people usually go 70 here so if you aren’t ready for it, they could hit you with a big speeding ticket. Got stopped right after another guy got his ticket. Wouldn’t doubt if the State Trooper got another one right after I left.
St Tammany Parish Sheriff has AM and PM detail work for the GMA. They ticket the home owners as they go to and from work. The home owners in the Greenleave subdivition pay for the security/detail St Tammy Parish at the tune of $57,000.00 per year on to of the high property tax and alll the ticket they write. We are getting robbed! Where is the security in that?
Police wait in the middle turn lane & in the shopping center with radar guns. Usually only in the mornings when the 25 mph school zone is in effect. Cars speeding along, not paying attention to the non-lit school zone signs from the east are especially vunerable. Saw 5 cars pulled over within 15 minutes.
This bridge is the overpass at Hwy. 22, it’s a hill. A state trooper stands just on the other side of the hill in the middle with a radar gun.
Mandeville Police hide behind the cultivated median island of shrubs to ticket cars entering Meadowbrook and Pelican Athletic club. This is outside of their jurisdiction, but no one at City Hall seems to care.
