Entire Parish – Interstate Highway 20 – East and West
State troopers in marked cars hide in trees in medians. They use laser and shoot in both directions (east and westbound). Mid-day on a Sunday I was ticketed for doing 90 in a 70 zone.I was in the right lane surrounded front back and side by several other cars going the exact same speed but was the only one stopped. (Blond/ female/ BMW — ???.)The trooper came up from behind. In the past month, two other members of my family (all of us with Texas plates)have been ticketed in Bienville Parish. The officer was nice but wouldn’t cut me any slack. All of Bienville Parish on I-20 is a notorious speedtrap. Previous experience with the local prosecuting attorney is that he will cut some slack on the offense (reducing moving violation to a seat-belt violation) but not on the amount of the fine.
