Buckle up in your truck, or pay the consequences

The Louisiana Highway Safety Commission and law enforcement officers across the state are issuing a warning to pickup truck drivers and passengers - buckle up in your truck or risk paying a fine of at least $50.00.

Buckle Up in Your Truck is a special Louisiana enforcement wave that focuses on pickup truck occupants who are not wearing their seat belts. The fine for not wearing a seat belt in Louisiana is $50.00, and subsequent offenses carry a $75.00 fine plus court costs.

“Wearing your seat belt is absolutely the number one thing you can do to protect yourself from serious injury or death in a crash,” Freeman noted. “That’s especially true if you’re driving or riding in a pickup truck.”

LSU students hear about innovations in agriculture

As farm tractors across the globe move through fields, small sensors about the size of a hockey puck gather hundreds of thousands of data points — soil moisture, engine torque, down-force planting pressure and the speed at which a farmer is driving the equipment.

This is agriculture in the digital age.

But what do farmers do with all this data? That is where Steven Ward comes in.

Ward, an alumnus of the LSU College of Agriculture, is a Bayer Scientific Fellow and senior director of geospatial sciences at The Climate Corporation based in San Francisco.

He spoke on the LSU campus as part of the LSU College of Agriculture Alumni Speaker Series and presented a lecture to LSU AgCenter faculty and the public.
