In Louisiana, more people will be on the roadways this holiday season. As the number of fatal collisions climbs, state troopers are striving to ensure that people drive safely.

“We have an enhanced focus on impaired driving throughout the holiday season, Thanksgiving and Christmas, because a lot of folks want to go out and party for the holidays and then get behind the wheel inebriated,” Trooper Taylor Scrantz said.

“We have deadly collisions in both urban and rural areas, and it’s the same combination of factors: lack of seatbelt use, intoxicated driving, and speed,” Scrantz added.

Distracted driving, according to one Baton Rouge motorist, is the most serious traffic issue he encounters.

“People are texting, primarily texting, and they’re always on their computers, phones, and they just don’t pay attention, and I believe it affects people of all ages,” Wallace Taylor said.

He goes on to say that it may happen anyplace.

“My next-door neighbor’s mother was killed two years ago in Iowa by an 18-year-old girl who was texting on a brand-new highway with only two cars on the entire highway, and she ran head-on into my friend’s mother and killed her.”

Have a strategy to get safely home if you’re going to be drinking over Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to state troopers, and put down the phone whenever you’re travelling.
