Louisiana Drunk Driving Over the National Average
Statewide (October 1, 2019) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) have reported some alarming figures on driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Louisiana. According to the organization, DWI activity in the state is well over the national average. The agency reported 5.2 deaths per 100,000 people in Louisiana, versus a national average of 3.2. Additionally, 2.5 percent of Louisianans reported driving after drinking too much, versus 1.9 percent nationally.
Driving while intoxicated is dangerous to you, yours passengers, and your fellow drivers. Unfortunately, in Louisiana, it’s more common than in other parts of America, and that leads to needless car accidents. Mike Bradner Injury Attorneys strongly urges you to do everything you can to avoid DUIs. Use a designated driver, taxi, or ride-sharing service if you plan on drinking. Source: CDC
