Larger semi-trucks may increase Lake Charles car accidents

Professional drivers and major trucking companies might be at odds over a new idea about increasing the size of commercial trucks allowed on the nation's roadways. A study by the Federal Highway Administration is being conducted to see if the size of trucks should be allowed to increase.

State bans posting to social media sites while driving

Louisiana, like many other states, has had many problems with drivers texting or using a handheld cellphone while behind the wheel. Despite passing laws banning the practice, there were still several drivers taking their eyes off of the road. Legislators were concerned that there was a loophole in the laws that allowed drivers to post to social media sites, like Facebook or twitter while they were behind the wheel.

If the public ran insurance companies, texters would pay more

The message is getting across: texting while driving is dangerous. Or at least that might be one take away from an interesting survey recently conducted by CarInsurance.com. The website asked 1,000 people how they would charge people if they ran an insurance company. Many people said they would increase insurance costs for those who text, place surcharges on those who are ticketed for using a cellphone while driving and offering discounts to those who install devices that disable cell phones while driving.
