Unique Laws in Baton Rouge

In Louisiana, a county is known as a parish, and Baton Rouge lies in – and is consolidated with – East Baton Rouge Parish.

Louisiana is one of a handful of states where it is illegal for any vehicle to use hazard lights while moving, according to a list state laws compiled by the website, lifehacker.com. Other states allow it in emergency situations or to indicate a hazard such as heavy rain, while some allow hazard light use at any time.

More obscure but entertaining laws specify that you can get jail or prison time for stealing an alligator or crawfish. The crawfish law refers to commercially grown, farm specimens that are worth more than $500. The alligator law refers to either a living or dead gator, taken by a person “with intent to deprive the other permanently of the alligator, the alligator's skin or part of an alligator.”

Baton Rouge Crime Statistics

Louisiana has had the nation's highest murder rate per capita since 1989, according to FBI statistics, with Baton Rouge with the third highest rate among Louisiana cities after New Orleans and Monroe.

As far as car thefts, Baton Rouge had 1,968 cases in 2016, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, or a rate of 273 incidents per 100,000 people. The national average is 220 incidents per 100,000 people.

Baton Rouge Safety Requirements

The driver and all passengers in Louisiana must wear seat belts, according to state laws. The “Child Occupant Seatbelt Law” states children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old must be restrained by appropriate means – either a lap belt and shoulder harness or a booster seat. Louisiana bans texting or reading texts while driving, as well as cellphone use in a school zone.

Baton Rouge Impaired Driving Laws

Drivers can be charged with driving while intoxicated if they have a breath or blood alcohol content of .08 or more, even if their driving wasn't impaired, Louisiana laws state. A BAC of .08 is a standard measurement across the U.S. For those under 21, the penalties are the same for a BAC of .02. First offenders receive 2 days in jail or 32 hours community service, plus fines.

    I am a former employee of John Chappetta's Hammond office, and was unfairly dismissed without reason after nearly four months. John Chappetta, I believe, was unaware, as the hiring manager appeared to act solely on her own. Alisa Lavigne, the office manager, told John that I resigned. Because of Alisa Lavigne, I was denied benefits, which I only applied for two months after being dismissed, but I do not intend to let her lies and deception further affect hard workers in the Hammond area. John Chappetta, I must say, was a pleasure to be around, and one of the hardest working bosses I have had. His dedication to his customers is something special, but perhaps a staffing evaluation is needed.
