Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person is getting injured in approximately two minutes. Unfortunately, despite the government’s aggressive efforts to educate drivers about safety, the cases of speeding, driving under the influence, and negligence are still on the rise. In fact, most of the common causes of accidents in the state are due to the driver’s lack of awareness and precaution.
Knowing the statistics helps us to be more aware of how our choices can affect other people’s lives. For instance, driving while under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs dramatically increases your risk of being involved in a crash by roughly 16% and 24%, respectively. While these cases are extremely dangerous, these can be prevented by making the right decisions. So before hitting the road, know that car accidents leave scars and trauma that can be devastating for the victims. For this reason, it is important that you take all the necessary precautions to avoid it.
