GOTCHA! – Henderson police cars lie in wait for unsuspecting motorists exceeding the posted 60/65 mph speed limit for the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge as they accelerate toward the 70 mph zone on Interstate 10 in this 2013 photo. Since the Town of Henderson annexed the strip of I-10 roadbed between the bridge and the Henderson exit in 2005, a significant percentage of its operating revenue has come from fines and forfeitures. After one former high-ranking officer admitted in court to an illegal scheme to pay officers for writing tickets, the police chief agreed to curtail patrolling the interstate for the sole purpose of writing tickets.

In 16th Judicial District Court in St. Martinville Monday, former Henderson Assistant Police Chief Oliver “Mack” Lloyd entered a guilty plea for long-standing charges of deceptive and illegal practices in issuing speeding tickets on I-10.
