Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Whenever drivers are destructive and reckless in the middle of the night, alcohol and drugs are likely contributing factors. Alcohol construes a driver’s ability to make sound decisions while on the road. Sometimes alcohol makes drivers more aggressive, making them more likely to inflict harm upon themselves and others. The most DUI accidents occur on the weekend between 6 pm and midnight.
