    • Abstract:
      The 2008 LOUISIANA TRAFFIC RECORDS DATA REPORT indicates the following

      occurrence rates for 2008:

      • 818 fatal crashes

      • 913 fatalities

      • 75.9 thousand injuries

      • 110.6 thousand property-damage-only crashes

      These crashes resulted in

      • a cost of $6.43 billion dollars to the citizens of Louisiana

      • a cost of $2,264 for every licensed driver in Louisiana

      The main contributing factors to Louisiana’s 2007 traffi c fatalities were alcohol and a

      low-percentage use of safety belts. The traffi c-record data show the relationship of each

      contributing factor to fatalities:

      • 49% of traffi c fatalities were alcohol related.

      • 68% of occupants who died in a crash did not use a safety belt.

      The alcohol-related fatal crashes and fatalities data are estimated using a data

      mining algorithm developed at LSU. These results may deviate from results reported by

      FARS due to diff erences in the availability of data and model used to estimate the missing

      alcohol values.

      Traffi c reports received prior to May 20, 2009 form the basis of this report. Due to

      missing information and record errors, the table values may diff er from the true values.

      Tables aff ected by these concerns contain relating comments.
