Every single day, hundreds of Texas are involved in deadly car crashes and accidents. While some of it can be contributed to the size and population of our state, a good portion has to do with careless driving. In 2018, there were about 12,000 serious injuries due to car crashes. One key statistic to this is that 26% of fatal accidents in Texas involve a driver under the influence. Drunk driving in Texas is responsible for over 900 deaths each year.
Another key issue is the deaths at intersections. Over 700 people have been killed in Texas in 2018 at intersection crashes alone. While most people think these accidents happen in the city, the truth is that over half of these fatal crashes happen in rural areas. With high-speed limits and fewer people on the road, drivers tend to act more careless than they would on a city road. However, car drivers aren’t the only victims. 418 motorcyclists were killed on Texas roads in 2018.
