Tell me if you've experienced this while traveling on a Louisiana roadway. You're caught in a heavy downpour and you notice the vehicle in front of you has turned on their flashing hazard lights. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Well, according to Louisiana State Police not only is this a bad thing. It's a thing that's against the law.

Within the context of the Tweet Thread, State Police went on to explain why the practice is unsafe and why it's against the law.

When you stop and think about it, the reasoning makes perfect sense.

So, if you happen to find yourself caught out in a torrential downpour, which is still very likely for most Louisiana residents today, don't drive with your flashers on. If you feel conditions are unsafe for you to continue driving look for the nearest opportunity to pull off the roadway. If no other option is available only then should you pull to the very far side of the shoulder of the roadway and stop with your hazard lights flashing.
