Yeah but they will do it in a heartbeat. They also love opening their trunk so you cant see the light bar when they are sitting on the bridge gunning people. That shite always catches me off guard.

That's why they wait at the ends.

I never understood why they have so many wrecks on those bridges. 2 lanes going in the same direction, only 2 on ramps/exits. I don't get it.

Well with that bridge, if there is a wreck, it's a huge cluster. No easy detours.

I knw. And they seem to have these huge firey crashes. Ever notice how many places that bridge has where the concrete is all fricked up from burning?

Not to mention the Henderson City Police waiting on the west end and whatever Sheriffs Dept that is waiting on the east end.

The do that same thing under the picardy overpass. They hide in the shadow of the overpass with the trunk up.

Had to drive to Laffy a few weeks ago and counted 9 troopers on the bridge and 5 Iberville Parish Sheriffs at the Lafayette side of the bridge.

Most likely trying to catch drug runners. The K9 sherriffs I used to know were always out there doing this. I'd blow past them b/c I knew it was them.

I actually enjoy seeing the vehicles with out of state plates fly past me on the basin. Because you KNOW the troopers are waiting up ahead.

I see them everytime. 2 or 3 units on either side of the west bound lanes. They look like regular units though. I dont remember ever seeing any K9's.

It's a bridge. It has only one very narrow shoulder per side. It has poor drainage--again only on one side of the roadway. In the rain the rainwater tends to pool on the road causing hydroplaning.

People need to slow down. I think 60 is too slow but people that go 70 + are ignoring the dangers traveling there present.

What is the difference between alerting speed traps and alerting DUI checkpoints?!?!
