Car Accidents in Texas
Nearly 4,000 traffic accident fatalities occur every year in Texas. Most traffic accidents occur because of distracted driving, which is easily preventable since most distractions are caused by cell phone usage, alcohol consumption, loud music, loud outside noise, conversations with other passengers, and more. If more drivers committed to driving safely on the road, fewer injuries and fatalities would occur.
