I-10 Westbound right before Exit 31

Lake Charles, LouisianaJul 14, 20031 Comments

On I-10 westbound in Lake Charles LA, there are 2 curves which are relatively sharp for the area. After the last curves is a moderately straight stretch of road that climbs a small hill. The posted speed limit is 60mph in this area. Trooper will sit just over the crest of the hill and NAIL you as you cross over, as the straight stretch of road has probably influenced you to go faster than the unreasonably slow posted limit. Troopers are not very lenient when it comes to writing the ticket, either. This is a BAD place and lots of tickets are given here as Calcasieu Parish has almost no money except for gambling revenue, and tickets are the only way they can get money.

It is 2012 and This is still going on exactly as you described and on both sides of highway. Saw The speed limit was 70 then suddenly is 60 only for this short area then back to 70 again. Never saw a sign posting the change, Could have easily missed a sign given It is an area one may be focused on making a pit stop. Zero Tolerance state on speeding.
