Have you ever been traveling along an interstate system and observed a Trooper facing the opposite direction with emergency lights activated?
This is a technique used to warn motorists of slowed or stopped traffic ahead, which is called a traffic queue. By giving advanced warning to motorists, they are able to slow their speed to react to the traffic congestion ahead.
On I-20 in Ouachita Parish, Troopers are providing advanced warning for construction crews working to improve our roadways.
Please reduce your speed and use caution in all construction zones so these men and women can safely return to their families.
