Waterproof, Louisiana Speed Traps
Come around a slight curve and you’re in town. Speed drops suddenly and it’s to late. Officer was sitting in a car wash with radar. Real Barney type officer that probably had his bullet in his pocket. Told me himself that it was a speed trap!
Oficer sits by gas pumps at closed truck stop on east side of road. Will stop you and write a ticket for 46 in a 45.
The officers are hidden behind trash dumspter as you enter the town of Waterproof and the speed limit drops without warning but there is no need to point this out to the officer – he is quick to tell you this is the Highway Departments problem and not his.
Police face north and will clock you before you get to the speed limit sign.
City officer sits just inside on city limits sign and checks speed of drivers on US highway before entering city limits and gives tickets as a city speeding violation. Driver speed is checked on state highway outside city. Even though driver speed is correct by the time the driver reaches city limits, the citation is issued anyway as a city violation.
