The city of Natchitoches has extended its city limits two miles north and south of the Natchitoches exit on I-49. The only reason for doing this is so they can take advantage of out of town speeders. They have gone as far as black topping a turn around about 1.5 miles south of the exit in the median for the cops to hide in the pine tress. When approaching the exit from the south make sure you are not speeding when you see a stand of pine tress in the median. The exit itself is seperated from the town by 2 miles so that puts city cops writing tickets a long ways away from where they should be.
