How many people die from truck accidents?

Many people in New Orleans may be intuitively weary of driving their cars next to large tractor-trailers on highways and other roadways. Given the fact that these large vehicles can be up to 30 times heavier than passenger cars, and that trucks are higher off the ground, a car is no match for a semi-truck in a collision. But just how many people die from accidents with large trucks?

Presumed drunk driver kills officer in New Orleans crash

Occasionally, people on New Orleans area roadways might see a police car parked on the side or shoulder of the road, while an officer conducts a traffic stop, or even tends to an auto accident. When this happens, Louisiana law requires that other drivers must yield to the parked police vehicle by either moving to another lane or slowing to a safe passing speed. But, like all other traffic laws, not all drivers always adhere to this requirement.

Considering the dangers of a car accident due to drowsy driving

Drivers in Louisiana and across the U.S. will be aware that there are many dangers on the road, such as drivers under the influence, recklessness, negligence, being distracted and speeding. One issue that does not get as much attention as the others is drivers who get behind the wheel while they are drowsy. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is keeping an eye on this problem and warning drivers about its risks.
