What you need to know about the new Louisiana travel advisory sticker that will be put on state buses, taxis, and rideshare vehicles
A Louisiana transportation advisory sticker has been approved by the Louisiana Department of Transportation (DOT).
The new stickers will be placed on buses, cabs, and the vehicles that are part of the ride-hailing service Uber and Lyft.
The department says that the stickers will give motorists a clear indication that they should stay out of the way of vehicles, and that they will not be allowed to park in the way.
The stickers are designed to give motorists an audible warning before they get into the way or get into a dangerous position.
They will also warn drivers that they are at a higher risk of injury and death when in a collision with another vehicle.
The DOT said that it will be distributing the stickers to all Louisiana drivers on Tuesday.
The department says it is not yet aware of any fatalities caused by the stickers.
The new rules also require drivers to wear a seatbelt and to stay out front.
