Report ranks Louisiana No. 13 for drunk driving problems

Drunk driving creates all sorts of dangers out on the roads. So, how much in the way of drunk driving problems a state has has major safety implications for the state’s motorists.

A recent report ranked the 50 states when it comes to drunk driving. It looked at various government data to look into what level of DUI problems each state has. The report found Wyoming to have the most problems related to DUI and New York to have the least.

How does Louisiana compare to other states in regards to drunk driving? Well, it didn’t end up in the top 10 for states with the most DUI problems. However, it wasn’t too many spots off. The report ranked Louisiana 13th overall when it comes to such problems. This ranking suggests that Louisiana is faring worse than quite a few other states when it comes to drunk driving.

How prevalent of a traffic safety problem do you feel drunk driving is here in Louisiana?

Accidents caused by drunk drivers can wreak havoc on the lives of their victims. The injuries from such crashes and their effects can create all sorts of difficulties for such victims. Being fairly compensated for their injuries could help such a person with tackling these difficulties. So, legal issues regarding compensation can be very impactful ones for individuals who were subjected to harm out on the roads by a drunk driver. Skilled attorneys can give victims of drunk driving accidents guidance when it comes to such issues.
