Sorrento, Louisiana Speed Traps
A State police cruiser sits parked on the shoulder of the northbound side of the highway. The speed limit drops from 65 to 55 in this area. The trooper pops his trunk open so you can’t easily identify that the vehicle is a police car. The trooper actually sits in the trunk of the car with his lidar to catch you. I have seen him there only in the evening catching commuters coming home from New Orleans direction. Very, very hard to spot if you aren’t aware he’ll be waiting there for you coming home from a long day at work.
Cop is standing in yard on the other side the fence shooting radar at those comming out of Braud rd, and possibly down main. Comming down Braud rd, you can’t see him because of the glare off the fence. Be careful.
Been caught early in the morning during rush hour on Hwy. 22, heading to the interstate. They sit right past the bridge where the speed limit changes from 55 to 45. Had one guy clocking, another writing.
As you drive from airline Hwy to I-10 I have counted 6 different speed limits within a two mile area, this is definitely designed to confuse and trap the motorist. The local Sorrento police patrols this area with a passion, they also set the radar at various points during this 2 miles. The speed limit goes from 55 to 45 to 30 to 45 to 55 and back to 45, all this in a two mile drive. Tell me this isn’t absurd!
Sorrento cops sit on the bridge crossing Bayou Conway in front of River Parishes Community College throughout the morning and in the late evening while students are coming and going from morning and night classes. Coming from Airline Hwy, you can’t see the car until your right on it. Be careful coming from the interstate and Airline Hwy
