State Highway LA 117 near Mile Marker
As you are travelling north from LA 28 on LA 117, there are 15 miles of HWY 117 before you reach the haven of Natchitoches Parish. Those last 5 or 6 miles are routinely monitored. I travel the road Monday through Friday. I see a Patrol car 4 out of 5 days at the least – mst often with someone pulled over. They generally won’t get you for 9 or less over -ther are too many that do 15-20 over. It is a lonely road and those last 5-6 miles in Vernon Parish are straight and hilly, offering a multitude of trap sites. However, I never see a patrol car or a trap at night – they run from about 8 AM to about 430-500 PM. The good news is that the last 28 miles in Natchitoches are virtually patrol free. In the last year, I have seen one patrol car on the road (moving) and he didn’t have his radar operational.
