Be careful driving in Livonia, LA. I was speeding, but did not realize I also got a careless operation ticket, till I went to pay it on line. This is obviously the officers most important duty, so that the city can enlarge their coffers. I pass thru a lot, but I will never stop again to spend a penny in this city. I will go to Krotz Spring to get fuel and snacks.

Krotz Springs does the exact same thing coming off the bridge. It should be illegal for them to do that.

LA has always seemed like a stressful place to operate a motor vehicle. Speed traps, high auto insurance rates, and generally crappy roads.

That said, your cousins to the east, Alabama, ain't a whole heck of a lot better. Broke states and localities that need revenue.

I spent the summer of 2005 traveling to and from Krotz Springs for work and 2 - 3 days out of the week there was always a cop at the end of the bridge waiting to pull someone over for speeding. It's a strategic location because naturally your car tends to accelerate as you descend from that bridge unless you break. I found it odd when my supervisor at the job contacted me before my first day of work basically telling me to watch out for that. I didn't really understand what a speed trap was until that point.

Looks like much hasn't changed in Krotz Springs since then

What part of LA isn't a speed trap? I don't understand how people who speed never get tickets there.

In some instances speed traps are illegal, as this one should be.

In most states, speed traps have a legal definition. Usually the sign has to be obstructed, or the speed limit decreases at a fast rate (like going from a 65 to a 35 abruptly).

The posted speed limits are approved and voted on by elected officials. If you think this is illegal then your issue is with the people of the town not the law.

I think it shows a lack of disrespect for those in the community when you speed. Before you side with a law breaker, you should first determine the reason for the posted speed limit.


What if it was a construction zone or daycare nearby that the citizens were concerned about? Your statements just showed little regard for their concerns and needs.
