Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of deaths in Texas and the United States. To reduce the high fatality rate of traffic crashes, law enforcement and traffic agencies release tips for drivers to follow when on the road.
Motorists should pull slowly into traffic, pay close attention to blindspots using rear-view mirrors, and behind windshield pillars, or highway road signs. Watch out for drivers running red lights, keep one hand on the steering wheel, frequently maintain the vehicle’s engine, and look out for children and animals that might show up suddenly on the roadway.
