LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL News) - It's a common practice I see often while a storm is pounding the roadways.
You may think you are doing something to keep you and other drivers around you safe but Louisiana State Police say you are not. And, troopers point out, it's actually illegal...
Ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law, so we need to all make sure we know the new Louisiana laws going into effect tomorrow, August 1st. There are quite a few new Louisiana laws concerning tickets, sex offenders, childcare and more.
In only the past seven days, I've almost been in three vehicle accidents. Two of these happened on the same day while on my way home from work. Was it because I'm a horrible, reckless driver? No. All I was doing was merging into turning lanes, but as I did, other drivers were barreling towards the light because they didn't want to wait until it was the proper time to do so. This has to stop.
