DID YOU KNOW? USEFUL TIPS FOR DRIVERS

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office recently put out this great informational video for drivers as it pertains to moving over or slowing down.

As you can see, it's important to know what to do when an emergency vehicle is in your area. If you can't move over, then SLOW DOWN to 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit.

It's also a great idea to move over a lane for other vehicles such as sanitation, utility service vehicles, and tow trucks. These vehicles - whether they travel in a stop-and-go nature or they are carrying a big load - deserve our respect and precaution as well.
