The roads in Louisiana are bad, but the streets in Shreveport-Bossier City? They're the worst! These TikToks are proof!

If I'm buying a car in Shreveport-Bossier City, LA, should I opt for the tire package?

If you've spent any amount of time in Shreveport-Bossier City, then you know that a tire warranty isn't optional when buying a vehicle. In short, you'd be an idiot to buy a car without one. The roads here are THAT BAD!

The roads in Louisiana are notorious. The issue goes back to the late '80s and early '90s. Our roads were already in a sad state, but then the feds started talking about withholding funds for roads if we didn't raise the legal drinking age to 21. So, Louisiana being Louisiana, raised the drinking age to 21 from 18 with all kinds of legal loopholes. While the citizens of Louisiana dealt with the increase in the legal drinking age, we never saw an improvement in our infrastructure. Shocker, we know!

That all leads us to 2023 when driving on I-20 feels like you're literally dodging landmines if you haven't already hit a traffic cone from the road construction. Remember the story from a few years ago when Airline Drive in Bossier City almost swallowed a car? You can't make this stuff up. So we decided to take a look at TikTok to see what the creative geniuses there came up with regarding our little pothole problem.

I'll warn you in advance, there's some definite language that isn't suitable for work in some of these TikToks. You've been warned. Now get ready to laugh so hard you have snot bubbles coming out of your nose!
