RAPIDS PARISH, Louisiana – Going through Louisiana there are a lot of speed traps, and now one man has taken it upon himself to try and prevent others from getting pulled over for speeding.

Joey Hopewell, who grew up in Alexandria, Louisiana but now lives in Texas, paid for a billboard just outside the city.

Pictures of the billboard have been making the rounds on social media.

It reads: "Warning: Speed Zones Ahead" and names several nearby towns located on Highway 165 South.

Some officers say if the billboard gets people to slow down, they have no problem with it.
