You might have been driving for years or even decades and still not know all the rules for driving in the state you're in. Trust me I'm no expert, but I did stumble across a law that I never knew about when it comes to red lights in Louisiana. It's not always the law in Louisiana to wait for the light to turn green before turning left!

DrivingLaws.org says, "In Louisiana, a motorist can do a left turn after stopping at a red light only from a one-way street onto another one-way street." 

Now being that this only applies to one-way streets, it shows it only applies to cities and obviously you'll still want to watch for traffic or pedestrians crossing your path before turning. Also I've learned yellow lights don't mean hurry and speed up before the light turns red... Who knew?!
