Trooper David Encourages Safe, Responsible Driving On The Roadways
One of the biggest problems on the roadways - texting while driving - was a prevalent theme this week as La. State Police Spokesperson Brooks David came to the KPEL studio for his weekly segment on "The Morning Show."
"They (people) need to realize, if you take your eyes off the road for two seconds it can cause a massive crash and take somebody's life," pointed out Trooper David. "We see it on a daily basis, people getting killed because of a text message. It's not that important."
Another topic that Trooper David addressed was when multiple cars turn into a divided median. Many times people hug the curve closest to them, but that's not following the law, says Trooper David.
"You have to stay to the farthest part of the right side of the road as possible."
He says to follow the traffic control signs - whether it's a stop sign or a yield sign - when you approach the divided median.
You can listen to Trooper Brooks David's segment every Tuesday morning at 7:10 a.m. on "The Morning Show."
