Safety Coalition

Southwest Louisiana (SWLA) is a beautiful place to live and travel. The five-parish area (Calcasieu, Cameron, Allen, Jeff Davis and Beauregard) supports highways, interstates and rural roads that people travel for all sorts of different purposes.

Bicyclists, pedestrians, drivers and passengers, and motorcyclists all use the roadways to reach a destination. The goal of SWLA RSC is to make sure that every person safely arrives at his/her destination, which will result in the achievement of Louisiana's ultimate goal: zero deaths on Louisiana roadways.

The coalition focuses on five emphasis areas:
1. Distracted Driving
2. Impaired Driving
3. Infrastructure and Operations
4. Occupant Protection
5. Young Drivers
