In 2019, distracted driver incidents continue to rise

For Louisianans and people across the nation, discussions about encountering a distracted driver are becoming a constant part of everyday life. This is largely because there are so many people who are getting behind the wheel and then decide they can multitask by using a device or taking part in other activities.

Fatal auto accidents could increase with ride-sharing

Convenience and safety are two reasons for people in Louisiana to use ridesharing services. Rather than drive themselves, there are benefits to using these apps. If, for example, a person has a night out and drinks alcohol, it is preferable to let someone else drive rather than run the risk of causing an accident and being arrested for driving under the influence. However, with any innovation, there are inevitable risks.

Distracted teens at substantially higher auto accident risk

Teen drivers in Louisiana and across the nation will not have experience on their side when they are behind the wheel. That lack of driving experience lends itself to mistakes, like driving distracted, that can cause an auto accident.. After an auto accident with a teen, determining if it was due to distraction can be a key point for a victim to consider when evaluating options.

Drowsy driving from changing clocks can spark car accidents

For Louisianans and people across the U.S., the spring time change when the clocks are moved an hour forward to gain an hour of daylight might seem to be a minor issue. Many see it as a small adjustment with the inconvenience of a lost hour of sleep, but it takes a short time to grow accustomed to it.

Pedestrian accident fatalities the highest in three decades

Most Louisianans understand the need to be cautious when walking near streets. Given the number of distracted drivers, motorists who are under the influence, and reckless or negligent driver, there is always a chance that a pedestrian-auto accident will occur. Statistics regarding pedestrian accidents and fatalities give a sense of the scope of the problem.

Auto accident deaths surpass 40,000 for third year in a row

Increased road safety is important to Louisianans and people across the nation. To determine how to achieve this, research is critical. While technology is improving and law enforcement and legislators have more information at their disposal to determine strategies to improve safety, there are still a significant number of auto accidents resulting in personal injury and death. Research from the National Safety Council (NSC) showed just how common fatal auto accidents have been and continue to be.
