9News Early Edition from Matt Williams: March 28, 2012 - WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports

Man suspected of killing Silas Gibbs returns to BR

 


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Red light cameras can bring out some pretty heated opinions, but how about a red light camera on a school bus? It could be coming our way and if you don't stop while the bus has its flashing lights on, a big fine could be coming your way. It'll cost you three times more than a regular red light camera violation. What do you think? Have you heard the latest on the Saints, Sean Payton and Bill Parcells? I wonder what they talked about during that round of golf on Tuesday. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before heading out today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
