Vehicle Collisions in Texas
Sadly, the leading cause of death for children under the age of 15 is unintentional injury, with the most common cause being vehicle collisions. Between the years of 2010 and 2014, over 2,880 kids lost their lives in vehicle accidents. When drivers run stop signs, they risk crashing into other vehicle and/or pedestrians. Most drivers disregard stop signs when they are distracted, under the influence, or in a rush to their destinations.
