What’s Up Wednesday: 12/6/18



 

As of November 30th, there have been 155 crashes on the Causeway Bridge this year.

Too bad we can’t all travel by flying sleigh because December is a busy time on our nation’s roads. Everyone is in a hurry to finish their Christmas shopping, buying gifts or celebrating with loved ones. Although all of those fun things are important, it is paramount to watch your speed this Holiday season.

In Louisiana alone, One hundred and sixty-five of the fatal accidents last year were related to speeding. Cars going at higher speeds do more damage if they hit another vehicle, and they may not be able to stop or slow down in time to avert an accident.

So plan ahead to allow for extra time to get to your destination, take time to call ahead if you’re running late, and drive safely!
