The Louisiana Department of Insurance and the Louisiana Automobile Theft and Insurance Fraud Prevention Authority (LATIFPA) are pleased to announce the winner of the “Protect My Ride Louisiana” video contest. This marks the second year of the contest which encourages Louisiana high schools and youth organizations to produce a short video on preventing auto theft.
