In the 2014 Legislative session, Louisiana lawmakers revamped several laws affecting motorists.
Laws affecting everyday drivers include a school zone cell phone ban, Louisiana Litter Law updates and vehicle inspections that can now be conducted in the rain.
Although not all schools are within the city limits, Ruston Police Department Sgt. Clint Williams, public information officer, said RPD officers will be working school zones actively during the new school year.
Three adults and two juveniles were arrested this week in connection with the December burglary of a local fireworks stand.
Maj. Stephen Williams, spokesman for the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office, said in December a burglary was reported at one of the fireworks stands on UPS Road, off of Louisiana Highway 33. Several boxes of fireworks and two cash registers were reported stolen.
Williams said after a long investigation, LPSO investigators, in conjunction with Union Parish Sheriff’s Office investigators, were led to three adults and two juveniles.
