Car Accidents in Texas
In 2017, nearly 4,000 people lost their lives on Texas roads. It’s unfortunate that car accidents still continue to take the lives of thousands of people when drivers could just choose to operate their vehicles responsibly. Most fatal collisions happen within seconds of a distraction, which is why it’s important for drivers not to use their phones, not to take their hands off the steering, and not to take their eyes off of the road.
