Excessive drinking in Louisiana is higher than average

Excessive drinking in Louisiana is slightly higher than the national average, according to statistics from health professionals. They consider excessive drinking to be binge drinking, or having five or more drinks during the same event. That guide is for men. For women, it is slightly lower, at four or more.

The primary reason for accidents involving wrong-way drivers

If you look at each individual case, you can find many different reasons for wrong-way accidents. Sometimes, an elderly driver gets confused and gets on the highway going the wrong way. Other drivers claim not to have seen the warning signs. In some cases, darkness or poor weather conditions could play a role. Some drivers may get confused about what they're supposed to do when the lanes shift in a construction zone. Still others may get on a one-way road going the wrong way because they're confused about what the GPS is telling them to do.

Drunk drivers may fare better in accidents

Do you ever feel like, in a drunk driving accident, it is the other person - and not the drunk driver who caused the crash -- who fares worse? Maybe you got injured in a crash that the drunk driver walked away from without a scratch. Maybe you spent months in the hospital while they seemed to recover right away. It feels unfair.
