Report: LA Has 3rd Highest Bicycle Death Rate

Louisiana has the third-highest rate of bicycle deaths in the country. That’s according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

One report says the state’s bicycle death rate fell 34.4 percent since 1975, but the drop was due to the lower mortality rate in children because they are riding less frequently.

The CDC says Florida is the most deadly state for bicyclists. Delaware had higher rates of bicycle fatalities than Louisiana.
