Minneapolis, MN asked in Traffic Tickets for Louisiana

Q: What is a general speeding ticket in the state of Louisiana? And what is the LSA -RS ? Trooper was not his vehicle

My stepson was stopped by a LA. State Trooper, who lives in the same neighborhood, and given a general speeding ticket. The officer was standing in his parents front yard,and was not in his police vehicle with a speeding radar. The Trooper has harassed him in the past for no reason. The ticket doesn't have a speeding limit on it ,or how fast he was going?

A: La R.S. 32:64 is the general speed law. https://legis.la.gov/Legis/Law.aspx?d=88494 Sometimes, one may cite La R.S. 32:61. I would recommend that you contact a traffic ticket attorney in your area to discuss this specifically and what options exist.
