The Louisiana Department of Transportation is issuing a warning to motorists to avoid driving on Tuesday unless necessary.

DOTD officials said yesterday that icy conditions kept most drivers at home, which helped keep the number of vehicle collisions down across the state.

Louisiana State Police reported around 150 accidents, with many coming from drivers who ignored barricades.

Traffic engineers warn drivers to pay close attention to bridges and overpasses where ice is most likely to be found.
