DUI Accidents in Texas
In 2018, almost 1,000 people lost their lives in DUI accidents throughout Texas. Studies also reveal that most DUI accidents occur in the middle of the night on weekends. Once drivers have consumed too much alcohol, they turn irrational and make dangerous life choices, such as getting behind the wheel. Ultimately, they put themselves and everyone in their surroundings at risk of losing their lives.
