SHARE THE ROAD
Latest statistics shows that about 60% of fatalities resulted from roadway departures, 21% occurred at intersections and 18% were non-motorized (Pedestrian and bicycle). Louisiana has nearly 17,000 miles of state highways and 44,000 of local roads that are used by over 2.9 million licensed drivers. The SHSP uses a data-driven safety analysis that combines predictive and systemic approaches to prioritize the deployment of effective countermeasures on high-crash horizontal curves and intersections. The emphasis area also addresses non-motorized crashes, which are those involving pedestrians and bicyclists.
