Louisiana DOTD wants to cut down on distracted driving accidents

Crashes and congestion on I-10 are nothing new for Acadiana drivers, especially those heading between Lafayette and Baton Rouge.

Louisiana State Police says about 800 crashes happen every year on I-10 along that stretch of highway, with 77% of those accidents caused by drivers not paying attention.

The Louisiana DOTD put together a PSA video and posted it on their Facebook page about the dangers of distracted driving.
