Why is I-12 near Covington So Dangerous?

In St. Tammany, the three and half mile stretch of I-12 between Highway 21 and 190 can be a nightmare. I try to avoid it whenever I can. Did you know that St. Tammany has the third highest number of registered vehicles of any Parish in the state? Over 120,000 vehicles drive that stretch of I-12 every day. The best way to avoid accidents on I-12 is to have patience, practice defensive driving and avoid distractions. I know it's hard to have patience when your kid’s karate class starts in 10 minutes on Pinnacle Parkway and you're stuck on I-12 at a dead stop. But remember that phrase “better late than never?” It applies here. Also, try to resist the urge to check those emails and text messages. Remember, these 10 minutes stuck in traffic can be the most dangerous 10 minutes of your whole day. Finally, always practice defensive driving. As you know on the interstate you can go from 65 mph to dead stop all in just a span of a few seconds.
