IMPAIRED DRIVING

Louisiana's rates of alcohol and drug-related fatalities have been higher than the national average and the same holds true for the capital region.  The coalition is attempting to address this through coordinating increased and strategic enforcement, as well as training law enforcement; education and marketing directed toward at-risk populations; and finding and promoting alternatives to driving while impaired.  This last piece is a challenge, particularly in rural areas where there is not always viable public transportation or taxi service.  Coordinators are presently researching how other similar communities have provided alternative transportation options, including the possibility of a ride-sharing service such as Uber and Lyft.  While data indicates that progress has been made in recent years in reducing impaired driving, coalition coordinators are researching innovative national and international methods to further reduce impaired driving incidents and reach the goal of a 50% reduction by 2030.
