Traffic deaths rise 13.5 percent from 2011 to 2012

Louisiana drivers have probably noticed an increase in motor vehicle accidents lately. These observations are in line with a startling statistic about fatal accidents recently released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Over 7,500 people died in motor vehicle accidents in the first three months of 2012. This is an increase of 13.5 percent from the same period during 2011. Although the safety administration did not offer an explanation for this increase, it may be partly attributable to negligent drivers.

Suspected drunk driver crashes into a crowd at street festival

Louisiana residents are quite familiar with street festivals as a place to gather with friends and family to enjoy good food and music. Unfortunately a street festival in another state experienced a tragic event when a suspected drunk driver crashed through a barricade blocking the entrance to the street and directly into a crowd of people enjoying the festival. One festivalgoer was killed and four others were injured in the car accident.

Louisiana boating safety and increased DWI enforcements

According to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries 36 people died last year in boating crashes, and five of those deaths could be attributed to alcohol use. National statistics reveal in 2011 that 16 percent of all boating accident fatalities were directly related to the use of drugs or alcohol. That same year, the LDWF issued a total of 108 DWI citations to boat operators, ten of which were issued over one weekend dubbed Operation Dry Water.
