DUI Accidents in Texas
In 2015, approximately 1,323 people lost their lives in DUI accidents. Driving under the influence is extremely dangerous because drivers are more prone to speed, drive reckless, disobey traffic laws, and veer into opposite lanes. When drivers get behind the wheel after consuming too much alcohol, they put themselves and everyone else on road at risk of losing their lives.
