Changing Behaviors, Saving Lives
Distracted Driving Campaign
Nationally, motorcyclists are overrepresented in crashes and fatalities. In 2015, 92 motorcyclists lost their lives in 2,038 crashes on Louisiana's roads. As vulnerable road users, motorcyclists should practice safe and responsible operator behavior such as obeying speed limits, wearing a helmet, and not operating their motorcycle under any form of impairment.
A universal helmet law was enacted in Louisiana in 2004 and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that over 43% of motorcyclist fatalities across the United States in 2013 could have been prevented by use of a helmet. For more information on Motorcycle Operator Training Courses, please contact the

. Organizations, such as the Motorcycle Awareness Campaign, are provided with funding by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission to raise awareness of motorcyclists to the motoring public.
