2 practices to help Louisiana drivers avoid pain and suffering

Drunk drivers and people who fail to use safety belts in Louisiana put themselves and others in danger. Indeed, the latest statistics from 2013 regarding car accident fatalities proves this to be true. Considering the immense pain and suffering that victims and families must endure following a deadly car accident, it is hoped that more Louisiana residents will heed this warning.
In 2013, there were 43 fatal car crashes in northeastern Louisiana. This represents an increase compared to the average number of annual fatalities over the last seven years, which was 41. Out of the 43 fatal accidents in 2013, 35 of them involved a victim who was not wearing a seatbelt or an intoxicated driver.
The total number of deaths from vehicular accidents also increased above the seven-year average of 46. A total of 51 people died from motor vehicle accidents last year. Given these increased figures, the Louisiana State Police are trying to educate the driving public on the importance of safe driving practices.
Not getting behind the wheel drunk and putting one's safety belt on are two of the easiest and most effective things that drivers can do to stay safe. If that is not enough, drivers should also be warned that they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law if they cause the death or injury of another individual while driving under the influence -- they may even spend time in jail. Those injured by a drunk driver, and the families of those who are killed, will also have civil cases to seek monetary damages for financial losses as well as the pain and suffering caused by such irresponsible behavior.
