The Traffic Division consists of one sergeant and one traffic deputy. The vital role of the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Traffic Division is to make the roadways safe for Iberia Parish and the City of New Iberia. The Traffic Division strives to reduce the number of vehicle crashes by the strict enforcement of local and state traffic laws. In over 70% of vehicle crashes, the statistics have shown that speed is a major contributing factor. Knowing this, the Traffic Division will make every effort in the continuous professional enforcement of everyday traffic violations. This is an attempt to reduce the number of injuries to persons and damage to property caused by motor vehicle crashes.
The five division members are well trained in speed enforcement, motor vehicle crash investigation and D.U.I. apprehension. Their certifications include training from vast agencies such as North Western University, Louisiana State Police, University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office Training Academy.
Finally, if you have any concerns of roadway hazards including speeding, stop sign violations, illegal parking or any other violations of local or state laws, please contact the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office Traffic Division. Please know the Traffic Division will target areas of concern based on citizen complaints and high volume traffic roadways whereas motor vehicle accidents are more likely to occur.
