Metairie, Louisiana Speed Traps
A state trooper will park about 100 yds past the eastbound I-10 Veterans Blvd exit to monitor exit speeds. You go from 60 mph on the I-10 to 30 mph on the exit ramp, with little distance to slow without impeding traffic. The exit is just over the top of an overpass that is located in a turn. When exiting, the trooper is hidden by trees at the exit and, as you pass the trees, he is parked on the left facing you. If you have not slowed immediately upon exit (within the first 50 yds), it is too late when you see him.
All along W. Esplanade. 10 miles over the limit (35) cocts $176.50, even when charge changed to improper equipment.
State police are using radar gun on Airline Highway almost everyday between 4-6 p.m. This speed trap is just before Ridgeway drive on Airline.
5 to 6 State police hidden in the indentation of the fence behind the Metairie Country Club Golf Course. The posted speed is 40 (way too slow for a former highway) they hide behind the end of the fence and step out to wave you over sometimes getting 2 or 3 cars at a time. This trap is so notorious that someone painted the words "STATE PIG PEN" on the fence where they hide.
On Edenborn ave. between 18th street and W.Esplanade. They will pull you over if you are going 2 mph over the limit.
