U.S. Highway 90 cuts straight through the heart of the west bank of St. Charles Parish. The highway is an inescapable daily reality for residents of Des Allemands, Paradis, Mozella, Boutte, and Luling, and natives of Hahnville, Ama, and Killona often find themselves as drivers or passengers on the heavily traveled roadway. To go along with the heavy traffic, the red-lights, the big trucks, and the inattentive drivers, Highway 90 has something else – title of “Most Dangerous Highway in Louisiana!.”
Geotab, a technology company providing fleet management solutions to help manage drivers and vehicles, recently released a study on “The Most Dangerous Highways in America”.
With a fatal crash rate of 1.2, over 270 total crashes and 295 fatalities during the review period, Highway 90 tops the list as the most dangerous highway in Louisiana.
Highway 90 ranks 5th worst for total fatalities, 7th most in total crashes, and 11th for fatal crash rate.
As many local residents do, my family and I have personal experience driving on and being involved in a crash on Highway 90 here in St. Charles Parish. We can attest to the dangers of the highway, and it seems to get busier by the day.
Please stay safe out there if you travel Highway 90 or any other roadway.
