Are zoned out drivers sometimes to blame for car accidents?

When a Louisiana driver thinks about common causes for traffic collisions, he or she probably thinks about things such as speeding and drunk driving. It may never occur to a reader that one of the most significant dangers on the road could be a "zombie driver". This is not the same type of zombie that a person may see on TV, but this is a person is completely zoned out while driving. Zombie drivers greatly increase the chances for car accidents.

Car accidents and road safety continue to be major concern

Motor vehicle accidents are a major source of concern in Louisiana, as they are in every state across the country. Despite speed limits, safety awareness campaigns and other measures, the rate of serious and fatal car accidents continues to rise. In fact, statistics indicate that 2018 was one of the deadliest years of the past decades regarding auto collisions.

New technology may reduce the chance of pedestrian accidents

When a moving vehicle collides with a person who is outside of the car, the results can be devastating. Pedestrian accidents often result in serious injuries or even fatalities, even when the vehicle is moving at a slow rate of speed at the time. In order to reduce the chance of these types of serious accidents, automakers are developing technology that can make the roads safer for Louisiana drivers and pedestrians.

Bill seeks to reduce car accidents and make roads safer

Distraction is a major safety concern on Louisiana roads, and it is now one of the most significant hazards that can endanger motorists. In order to reduce the number of fatal accidents related to cell phone use, one lawmaker proposed a bill that would expand on an existing bill that prohibits cell phone use in school zones. If passed, it is possible this legislation could reduce car accidents and make the roads safer.
