Vehicle breakdowns can be unexpected. The Louisiana State Police advise if motorists find themselves stranded during 4th of July holiday travels, they can dial *LSP (*577) to contact the nearest LSP Troop for assistance. Individuals can also report dangerous roadway conditions or drivers they may encounter along the way.
LSP suggests that motorists limit breakdowns and delays by making sure their vehicle is roadworthy before a trip. Check tire tread/pressure, wiper blades, lights and fluid levels.
Also slow down and move over for stopped emergency vehicles, tow trucks and vehicles with their hazards on.
