Economic and statistical perspectives on traffic safety in Louisiana, 2005–2015
|Main Writer:||Onyumbe Enumbe B. Lukongo|
This study examines and applies recent empirical evidence fromMississippi and Alabama on fatal crashes and its Q196 relationship with gasoline prices and alcohol consumption using the Louisiana Crash Data Reports between January 2005 and December 2015. Results suggest that higher gasoline prices reduce fatalities among young drivers. A fewer number of young drivers on the roads are believed to reduce the likelihood of fatal crashes. Alcohol consumption is strongly associated with all types of fatal crashes. Underage drinking is still prominent in Louisiana. Extreme temperatures are positively associated with youth and other types of fatal crashes.
