How Can This New Law Affect Us in the Ark-La-Tex?
If you travel often or maybe you plan to head to Baton Rouge to watch the Tigers play you better slow down. Maybe you travel to New Orleans often, just know the cameras are watching you and will catch you if you speed.
This law will allow the use of cameras to support issuing a ticket. Yup, there is one of those magical cameras on Interstate 10 on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge. Yes, that bridge most of us use to get from Shreveport to New Orleans.
These Cameras Are Working From One Side of the Bridge to the Other Side.
The use of these cameras can tell how fast it takes a vehicle to get from one end of the bridge to the other end. Drivers who cross the bridge in less than 18 minutes can receive a speeding ticket in the mail. So basically keep it over 19 minutes, or refuse to speed on the bridge.
