Car Accidents in Texas
Whenever accidents occur in Texas at 3:00 a.m. on the weekend, the main cause is usually drunk driving. The most popular hours for drunk drivers to be on the road is between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m., which are when the roads are the most dangerous. Because drunk drivers are more likely to speed, break traffic laws, and crash into other vehicles, they risk seriously hurting everyone in their surroundings.
