Car Accidents in Texas
Sadly, over 160,000 car accidents occur annually throughout the country because of drivers running red lights. When drivers do this, they’re often being aggressive and impatient. Instead of yielding when traffic lights turn yellow, they speed through even when others have the right of way. Because running red lights is a clear act of negligence, drivers deserve to endure the consequences.
