Drinking and driving in Louisiana remains a major cause of vehicle crashes, serious injuries and fatalities. In 2016, alcohol-impaired drivers in Louisiana were involved in crashes that killed 334 people representing more than 40 percent of all traffic fatalities. State and local law enforcement officials work year-round to identify drunk drivers and get them off our roads


The LHSC supports programs such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign to combat impaired driving. LHSC also provides support to law enforcement agencies that conduct sobriety checkpoints throughout the year.
