Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Statistics indicate that between 2008 to 2017, almost 1,000 people lost their lives on Texas roadways because of drivers failing to stop at stop signs and red lights. Drivers do this when they’re under the influence, in a rush, on their cell phone, or asleep at the wheel. If other drivers who have the right-of-way are unable to brake in time, then a deadly collision could occur.
