Sherriff and/or state patrol wait on Eastbound shoulder facing Westbound traffic going to Fort Polk, Leesville, LA. As you pass from State Route 28 four-lane divided highway at 65mph to two lane 55mph, there is only one sign, which at night is hard to see/notice. There is no other sign for about 25 miles to Leesville where as you approach State Route 468 the speed limit goes back up to 65mph. The 65mph is well marked, numerous signs about every mile or so, but on the part out of the airport at Leesville to midpoint State Route 28 to Leesville the police actively wait for "revenue" by way of speed trap. I figure it was my donation to Katrina. I’ll never go back unless I have to. We counted the signs on the way back to the airport from Leesville to Alexandria in the 55 mph zone. We only counted two signs for the Eastbound traffic going to Fort Polk.
