Operating a motor vehicle is an important privilege and responsibility for drivers, especially in a state as large as Texas with more than 310,000 miles of public roadways. Tragically, every year in Texas, approximately 3,000 people are killed in traffic crashes and more than 80,000 are seriously injured.
Today, more than ever, drivers must avoid distractions in their own vehicle while also staying alert for impaired or unsafe drivers sharing the roadway – failing to do so could have tragic consequences.
