New Orleans, LA - Two Lanes Closed After Injury Accident on I-10 at Downman Rd

Unless and until drivers start obeying the rules of the road, injuries caused by Louisiana car accidents will continue to be one of the top five causes of death statewide, as it has been for a decade. 

Due in no small part to a lack of courtesy and common sense, several thousand accidents take place every single day throughout the United States. Even though most drivers are careful and try to be mindful of others sharing the road, they are not promised the same caution and consideration in return.  

There are precautions all drivers can take to reduce the injurious and fatal accident rate in Louisiana. Things like minding the speed limit, going slower during inclement weather, and driving defensively are important parts of keeping our streets safe.
