April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month in Louisiana and many different people and organizations are working together to spread the message about the importance of focusing on the road when driving.
In 2013, as many as 3,154 motorists in the United States lost their lives and approximately 424,000 others were injured in distracted driving accidents. Furthermore, it was determined that drivers who were not paying attention to the road caused 16 percent of all crashes.
The Louisiana car accident attorneys with Dudley DeBosier Injury Lawyers point out that there are several campaigns taking place throughout the next several weeks that will focus on reducing these numbers. First, several high schools in our area will partake in mock crash scenes that depict the outcomes of distracted driving.
