Cheneyville, Louisiana, Highway 71 Northbound
I was driving north on 71, approaching Cheneyville, when I noticed the police cruiser traveling south. I checked my speed (53 in a 55) and looked up and saw a sign warning me of an approaching 45 mile zone. I removed my foot from the accelerator, and by the time that I got to the "Speed Limit 45" sign, I was under 50 miles per hour. By the time we crossed paths, I was doing 45, on my way down to 35 for the next speed zone.
As soon as we crossed paths, the officer made a u-turn and initiated a traffic stop, issuing me a ticket for 55 in a 45. I didn’t even speak to him, I just signed the ticket and went about my business. Now that I see that others have had the same experience in this town, I am wondering if I should try to fight the ticket?
Anyway, watch your speed in Cheneyville, because it seems that the officer there isn’t familiar with the way speed zones work.
