In Louisiana, reckless driving is out - ‘wreck-less’ driving is in
The cleverly entitled “Wreck Less, Louisiana” campaign will tackle six highway safety issues in a barrage of press release and public service announcements in weeks and months to come.
Masterminding the initiative is the state Department of Transportation and Development. The agency believes drivers can be persuaded to pay more attention to safety issues and thereby reduce accident, injuries and death.
“Highway work-zone” safety will be addressed first with radio, television and print public-service announcements urging drivers to be cautious and obey posted speed limits in construction zones.
Accidents in highway work zones resulted in 12 deaths and 709 injuries in Louisiana, the latest-available statistics show.
The total cost of the “Wreck Less, Louisiana” campaign, which is paid for with Federal Highway Administration safety funds, is $950,000.
