Drinking and driving in Louisiana remains a major cause of vehicle crashes, serious injuries and fatalities. In 2017, more than 40 percent of the motor vehicle crashes in Louisiana were alcohol-related. These alcohol-related crashes resulted in 311 fatalities.  State and local law enforcement officials work year-round to identify drunk drivers and get them off our roads.


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