Thibodaux, Louisiana Speed Traps
There is a state trooper that sits on the corner of Brule Guillot Rd. and Madewood Place. He hides in the parking lot of a church – usually in the morning hours.
Troopers and local units love to sit on the side of St. Mary Street and just prey! My K40 has picked up a trooper sitting with his "lights totally off!" at night in the parking lot of that haircut place across from China Gardens. My K40 def saved me on that one! Another favorite is troopers like to back up where that Jesus sign is by that little church off St.Mary. They have a bush close to the street and they back up behind it. On Camelia Dr., which is the street to the right of the Rouses Corp Office off St. Mary, locals like to sit right behind the building and radar. Also I was going up that same street & there was a policeman, ON A BICYLE!, radaring! Like the ones you see on a college campus! I of course did NOT see him at all! Once again, my K40 saved me! The speed limit down that street is 20mph, which is pretty hard to do! Don’t forget there is PHOTO RADAR / RED LIGHT CAMERA at the intersection of Rob’s Donuts! If the light is yellow, don’t chance it! HUGE RECOMMENDATION: BUY A K40 RADAR/LASER DETECTER!
When coming from Thibodaux, be careful right past Percle’s store. There’s an empty lot with trees that usually has a State Policeman. The speed limit here is 40 which is ridiculous.
This trap is in the city limits of Thibodaux on Ridgefield Road from Young Place to the rail road crossing. The speed limit is 25 mph on a load straight road that its easy to speed on. The cops will sit on side streets, just far enough off the main road not to be seen by drivers. They usually set these traps up towards the end of the month and pull over multiple cars at a time to ticket them. I got a ticket recently on this road going 32 in a 25. I was the 3 car in a line of 5 and the cop pulled all of us over and ticketed us for the same speed.
