On Wednesday, October 14th, Shell and local Louisiana Partners in Safety Louisiana State Troop C and the South Central Regional Safety Coalition officially unveiled and turned on a state of the art digital LED billboard that will be used to promote safe driving.
Shell provided a grant to the South Central Regional Safety Coalition for the LED billboard. Troop C was selected to receive the billboard because of the high volumes of industry and personal traffic that passes in front of the Troop at the intersection of LA 24 and US 90.
This billboard will have the ability to broadcast national and local safety messages ranging from hurricane evacuation information and major road closures to safe driving tips.
Road safety is a top priority for Shell and this project will help improve awareness of potential hazards on the roadways and make Louisiana highways safer for everyone.
