Lieutenant Governor Nungesser Collaborates with Law Enforcement to Clear Roadways of Debris

by BIZ Magazine

In a proactive move to address roadway safety concerns, Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser has initiated efforts to ensure the swift removal of debris from Louisiana’s highways following accidents. Lieutenant Governor Nungesser recently engaged with Louisiana State Police superintendent, police chiefs, and sheriffs across the state, urging their cooperation in promptly clearing roadways of debris post-accident.

According to a litter study conducted for Keep Louisiana Beautiful, a program under the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, approximately 10 percent of all litter on Louisiana’s roadways comprises debris from automobile accidents. Recognizing the potential hazards posed by accident debris, Lieutenant Governor Nungesser emphasized the importance of promptly cleaning up such materials to mitigate risks to motorists and prevent further accidents.

“Based on agreements wrecker services have with law enforcement, we’ve asked law enforcement to work with us to ensure all accident debris is cleaned up by those responsible for getting that done,” stated Lieutenant Governor Nungesser.

Common debris left at accident scenes includes vehicle bumpers, glass shards, tire fragments, and personal belongings, which not only clutter roadways but also pose safety hazards to drivers. The presence of such debris increases the likelihood of vehicle damage and can potentially trigger additional accidents, exacerbating roadway congestion and safety risks.

Expressing gratitude to law enforcement for their cooperation in enhancing roadway safety, Lieutenant Governor Nungesser underscored the significance of collaborative efforts in maintaining clean and safe highways for all motorists.

“I want to thank law enforcement for assisting us in cleaning up our highways and making them safer for all of us,” remarked Lieutenant Governor Nungesser.

The collaborative initiative between Lieutenant Governor Nungesser’s office and law enforcement agencies reflects a proactive approach to addressing roadway safety concerns and underscores the commitment to safeguarding the well-being of Louisiana residents and visitors alike. Through coordinated efforts, stakeholders aim to streamline debris removal processes, mitigate safety risks, and enhance overall road safety across the state.
