2 Overview 1 The Cost of Crashes 2 Key Issues 3 Progress and Exposure 4

3 889 fatal crashes 985 killed (+2.1%) 48,682 injury traffic crashes with 79,976 injuries (+3.5%) 112,299 property-damage-only crashes (+3.9%) Crash Overview Changes in parenthesis

4 99 were killed as pedestrians which decreased by 8.3% from were killed as drivers of vehicles which increased by 5.9% from were killed on motorcycles which increased by 27% from were killed on bicycles which increased by 4.5% from 2005.

5 Louisiana's 2006 mileage fatality rate was 2.17 per 100 million miles traveled, increased by 1.06% from Louisiana's 2006 fatality rate was per 100,000 population which increased by 2.07% from Louisiana's 2006 fatality rate was per 100,000 licensed drivers which increased by 1% from Louisiana’s goal for mileage fatality rates in 2010 is 1.5.

6  $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 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 ).

13 Believes “people should be free to choose if they want to wear a seat belt or not” 38% “seat belts are uncomfortabl e” 46% Behavior 25% do not wear a seat belt Injuries 60% of drivers killed did not wear a seat belt Chance of death in rollover crash 2% (w) versus 20% (w/o)

14 PerceptionsSTRONGLY AGREE SOME AGREE SOME DISAGREE STRONGLY DISAGREE DNK Seat belts are not needed on short trips Seat belts are just as likely to harm you as to help you Seat belts are uncomfortable People should be free to choose if they want to wear a seat belt or not Seat belts aren't needed when in a pickup truck because it is a safer vehicle due to its sheer size

31  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.

34  Urban 30 min.  Rural 50 min.

35  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  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.

53  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 IN SAFETYINCREASE 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
