Sheriff, parish president collide over speed bumps

St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz and Parish President Bill Fontenot collided over the use of speed bumps on the parish’s newly paved roads.
The speed bump discussion came during the Parish Council’s meeting Wednesday in Opelousas.
Guidroz said, “We have over 300 miles of ... blacktopped parish roads in this parish and I get complaints and phone calls every day about the speeders. I wish I had the manpower and the radars to address those issues, but I don’t,” he said.
