New Orleans Driving Safety Tips

No one wants to get into a car accident. One of the factors that can play a major issue in the occurrence of car accidents is speeding and rushing to get somewhere when you are running late, hit unexpected traffic, or end up detoured around a closed road. The New Orleans government has designed a traffic report website that lists all of the road closures in real time so that you can make informed driving choices and change your route as necessary to avoid them and the need to rush to your destination.
