Durel Says Bridges To Be Open Soon

I so enjoy it when I run into any of you on the street or in the store or wherever and you tell me that you watch OR listen. Interaction with you guys is so much fun! And one of the things I enjoy doing is asking YOUR questions to Lafayette City-Parish President Joey Durel. Yes, he visits with Bruce and The Kennel Club each Thursday morning on 97.3 The Dawg, but before that, he stops by to answer viewer questions on Good Morning Acadiana on TV3 . One of the questions that SEVERAL viewers submitted (and then others repeated on the KATC Facebook fan page) was "when will the bridge on Chemin Metairie be completed?"

Road Rage, We’ve Got A Quiz That Could Save Your Life

Imagine, you're riding in the car with your wife and two children and out of the blue an angry driver starts to attack your wife and there is nothing you can do about it! That is what happened for Pittsburgh Pirates baseball catcher Chris Snyder. Snyder who is on the injured reserve list recently had back surgery, so recently in fact that when his wife was the victim of a road rage incident all he could do was sit by helplessly. Thankfully a pair of good samaritans were near by and heard the woman's screams for help. What is our issue with road rage these days? Does it seem like more and more people are snapping and becoming violent in traffic? Are you at risk of "losing it" while behind the wheel?  Take our quiz and let's see if you're at risk for road rage and if you would know what to do if you were approached by an aggressive driver.

The Deadly Weapon That Almost Everyone Has, Even Your Kids!

You don't think of yourself a potential killer do you? Good, I was getting scared for a second. Here is the honest truth, a good number of us don't know how to drive! Sure we can make the car go backwards and forwards but the kicker is quite a few of us don't know, remember or recall the basic rules of the road. It's been a while since I studied the Louisiana Drivers Manual and unless your 16 I bet it's been a while for you too.  Want to see some statistics that will make you think twice about leaving your driveway?

Police See Too Much

I admire the men and women who choose law enforcement as a career. You put your life on the line everyday to protect my rights and freedoms. Quite often when you are just trying to do your job you get blamed for a mistake that WE made. That being said, I bet you guys and gals see some really "interesting" things when you are on the job.

I-49 Toll Proposed

There is no doubt about it roads bring jobs and jobs bring people and people pay taxes and that's how regions grow. Here in Acadiana one of our biggest opportunities for growth is the further development of Interstate 49. This would extend America's Energy Corridor from the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico to the heartland of America.It would also help in evacuations during hurricane season. Are you willing to pay now for a pay off later?
