Vehicle Accidents in Texas
In 2015, Texas had the highest number of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities. Whenever vehicle accidents happen between the hours of midnight and 6:00 a.m., driving under the influence is often the leading cause. Those are the hours most drunk drivers are on the road, especially during the weekend. Because alcohol blurs vision and disables one’s ability to react quickly to their environment, they’re more likely to run red lights, not see other cars switching lanes, speed, and participate in other forms of reckless driving.
