And those of with any brains stay way the heck away from downtown...too many "race fans" think they are also race drivers and that traffic laws don't apply to them and the city seems to encourage it. Go stand along Broadway down at about Magnolia (right by where the LBPD detectives park their cars in the bus stop for weeks at a time "because I'm a cop, that's why"...genuine answer when I asked why) and count the number of serious moving violations per hour..."Red lights? We don't heed no stinkin' red lights...we're here to partay man!"
