Spring seems to bring a lot of rain to Louisiana, but on the days when the sun is shining and the weather is mild, people in Louisiana will begin to head outdoors. Some choose to relax during these times. They may be gardening, riding a bike or simply having some sweet tea on their front porch. Others will look to partake in more adventurous activities. They may go hiking, boating and some will head out on their motorcycles. In fact, motorcyclists are a common sight on Louisiana roads in the springtime.

It is a wonderful advent in technology, but unfortunately the use of a cellphone while driving is an increasing danger on the roads of Louisiana and across the nation.
