I49 Through Washington Louisiana

Washington, LouisianaApr 15, 20140 Comments

I was heading south on I-49 March 17 when I came over the over pass at Washington and a cop pulled me over for an 80 in a 75. I asked about the tolerence to over the speed limit and she stated that they have a zero tolerence for speeding. I asked her about being visible to oncoming traffic and she said that she did not have to show her vehicle. I stated to her that it was a speed trap and she said that it was my opinion and that she did nothing wrong. After signing my ticket I walked to the passengers side of the car and looked up, there she was stopping another driver. I wasn’t even back in my car when she pulled someone over. Maybe the FBI should investigate the City of Washington for breaking the law. I called on 04/15/2014 and was told my ticket is $170.00 for 5 miles over the speed limit. If you take that and times it by just 10 you have $1700.00 in less than a 12 hour shift, $3400.00 in a 24 hour period, $20400 per week, and $1,060,800.00 per year in revenue just off of 10 tickets in a 12 hour shift. There has to be something seriously wrong with this picture.
