Spring boat accident warns local boaters of possible dangers

Spring has arrived and Memorial Day is just around the corner. As temperatures rise more Louisiana residents will be getting their boats out of storage and out on the water. However, just as traffic on the roads tends to lead to more vehicle accidents, more boats on local waterways may increase the number of boating accidents experienced this season.

Pedestrians are subject to more serious injuries than those in motor vehicles when involved in collisions due to their relative lack of protection and safety devices. As a result, pedestrians and drivers must be aware of the other's presence to prevent such collisions where possible.

Motorcyclist killed in crash with pickup in Louisiana

Because of their design, motorcycles are oftentimes more likely to be involved in accidents and riders are more likely to suffer serious injuries. By design, motorcycles are smaller than most other vehicles. This makes them less easy to see, thereby increasing the likelihood of an accident occurring. The small frames also leave the riders more exposed and vulnerable than occupants of larger, more protected vehicles. Therefore, the likelihood of serious injuries -- or even death -- resulting from an accident is also high.
