Louisiana Car Accident Statistics
Alcohol plays an unfortunate role in Louisiana car accidents:
- Alcohol use was involved in 49 percent of fatal crashes in 2008.
- Alcohol use was involved in 9.2 percent of injury crashes in 2008.
These numbers remained fairly consistent over the past 10 years.
Over the past 10 years, fatal crashes were four to six times more likely to occur on rural highways with speed limits of 70 mph than on highways with lower speed limits, and injury crashes were about three times more likely to occur on rural highways.
Louisiana's Highway Safety Commission, in conjunction with Louisiana State University, publishes detailed data about Louisiana car accidents, for the whole state and by parish.
