Motorists need to be wary as students return
Louisiana Tech opened for classes today. With all area universities and schools back in session, there are more individuals in town than there were over the summer break.
Even more people are added to the mix on weekends when most schools have fall athletic events.
Residents have to be especially careful as many students and other residents will be inspired to visit the nightlife that Ruston and surrounding areas have to offer. This means residents have to make sure to pay extra attention for additional incidences of drunk driving that might not occur while school is out of session and there are fewer people in the city.
