Main Road Right Through The Center of Ferriday, Louisiana
Highway 65 goes right through this small town. Its a 4-lane highway but the speed suddenly drops from 65 to 45 and then to 25. I was following closely behind some family members so I know for a fact I wasn’t speeding because the cars in front of me weren’t. However, I was pulled over in a gas station by a woman and two other cop cars that came with her. She had no idea I was following behind my family but when she realized I was, she acted like she knew before. So apparently we were all speeding??
Anyways, she cited me for going 55 in a 45 and then preceded to give me the whole “If you pay before the court date it won’t go on your record”. What a scam! They are obviously making countless dollars on this, evident in their 2014 Dodge Chargers. How could this small town afford better cars and equipment then the ones we have in the state capitol (Baton Rouge). Peopleâ€¦.beware of this speed trap! If you are an out-of-town driver, you WILL get pulled over, speeding or not! I got fined $125 and when we called the office to learn how they charge, they couldn’t even give us an answer! These people don’t care about the safety of their town, they are their simply to make money, so beware when driving through Ferriday.
