Louisianas Fatality Rates
Louisianas goal for mileage fatality rates in
2010 is 1.5.
6
Cost of Crashes for Louisiana
  • 6.03 billion dollars for the citizens of
    Louisiana
  • This accounts for about 4.5 of personal income
  • 2,104 for every licensed driver in Louisiana
  • (based on 2.869 million licensed drivers

Source Cost estimates are based on a study
conducted by NHTSA in 2000 The Economic Impact
of Motor Vehicle Crashes (DOT HS 809446).

The Total Cost of Motor Vehicle Crashes 6.04

The Issues

ParetoThe 20-80 Rule
  • 80 of the problems come from 20 of the causes
  • Separate the Vital Few from the
  • Trivial Many

Over 84 of driver fatalities involve one of
these three factors of the driver killed.

  • 403 for every licensed driver

  • 2.9 Billion in 2006
  • 1,022 for every licensed driver

unreliable because of reporting issues.

Aggressive Driving
31
Aggressive Driving Predicaments
  • We all know it when we see it.
  • Defining it in operational terms is difficult.
  • How would it be applied?
  • Careless Operation seems to be a catch all
    for speeding and other aggressive driving
    already.

32
Distractions
  • Cell Phone - 10
  • Other electronic Devices - 2
  • Other inside - 19
  • Other outside - 29

Cell Phone use (2005 in parenthesis)
34
EMS Average time to hospital
  • Urban 30 min.
  • Rural 50 min.

35
Motorcycle
  • This analysis only considers motorcycles with two
    wheels on public roads. Dirt bikes on public
    roads are included, but no ATVs.
  • Only 2-wheel motorcycles or 3-wheel motorcycle
    with side compartment
  • Including 2-wheel off-road vehicles on public
    roads
  • Excluding all 4-wheel or 3-wheel off road vehicles

36
Motorcycle Endorsement
  • Motorcycles, motor driven cycles, and motorized
    bicycles are not be given a separate class, as
    such, but their use shall be provided for by
    making an endorsement.
  • Such an endorsement shall be made only after the
    applicant has taken and successfully passed tests
    specifically designed for the operation of such
    vehicles.
  • To comply with this law, the operator of any
    motorcycle, motor driven cycle or motorized
    bicycle (moped), in excess of 5 horsepower,
    regardless of maximum speed, or size of motor,
    must have an "M" endorsement on one of the basic
    classes of operator's license to operate such
    vehicle on the streets, highways, or roadways in
    Louisiana.

The ENDORSEMENT Issue
  • Only 36 of motorcycle riders in crashes had an
    endorsement
  • What does that mean? Did the other 64
  • Never have an endorsement?
  • Had an endorsement not renewed?

The Benefit of Helmet Use
  • The risk of fatal injuries in crashes doubles
    when motorcycle riders do not wear a helmet (6.5
    versus 3.9).
  • The risk of critical injury in a crash increases
    when motorcycle riders do not wear a helmet
    (10.5 versus 7.3).
  • However, alcohol is a much larger contributing
    factor to the death rate than wearing a helmet
    (18.7 versus 3.2).
  • Over the next 5 years helmet use could save 730
    million for Louisiana citizens.

54
Progress versus Exposure
  • Progress in Safety
  • Increase in Exposure
  • Increase in set belt use from 2000 to 2006
  • Some progress with reducing alcohol related
    crashes for minors
  • Other non measureable progress
  • Public awareness
  • Road safety
  • Increase in vehicle miles driven
  • Increase in SUVs
  • Increase in motorcycles on roads
