DWI Crashes in Texas
The Lone Star state leads the nation in high rates of traffic accidents involving intoxicated motorists. With nearly 30 percent of all crashes being caused by a drunk driver, it is safe to say that Texas has a drinking and driving problem. Harris County (Houston) had the highest number of drunk driving crashes at 2,869. Drunk drivers put everyone at risk when they get behind the wheel after too many drinks.
