PLAQUEMINE- There is a push to light a dark stretch of LA 1 through the Iberville Parish town.

People believe part of the highway, from the American Legion to the Plaquemine Truck Stop is too dark and dangerous for drivers.

"Having more street lights out here couldn't hurt nothing," driver Henry Dempsey said.

Parish leaders have asked the state to instal lights. DOTD said it will look at the highway and see if lights are necessary.
