How bad is traffic in your part of town?

A photo posted by Facebook user Hannah Reed shows a man selling cotton candy in traffic on Siegen Lane in Baton Rouge. I've seen backed up traffic before, and I've also seen people asking for money on the side of a busy street.

But I've never seen someone selling snacks. Clearly, it's dangerous (and surely it must be illegal) but snacks would definitely make terrible traffic more tolerable. Could you imagine someone rolling up to your window with a bag of peanut M&M's?

Exactly.

According to commenters on Reed's post, the man has also been seen selling cotton candy in other traffic jams around Baton Rouge.

Be careful Mr. Cotton Candy man, and If you ever come to Lafayette, Verot will appreciate you.
