The Most Dangerous Highways in Texas

The Most Dangerous Highways in Texas

According to crash fatality data from the NHTSA in 2018, three of the fifty most dangerous highways in the US run through North Texas: I-20, I-35, and US-175. This could be why it’s been almost 23 years since we have gone a day without a traffic fatality in Texas.

Causes of Traffic Accidents in Texas

According to the TxDOT district engineer, Ceason Clemens, speeding is the number one cause of traffic fatalities in Dallas County, with impaired driving as the second highest cause.

Half of all traffic fatalities between 2019-2022 were not wearing seatbelts.

What about the time of day? 70% of all accidents happen between 7am-7pm, but 55% of all fatal crashes happen overnight in Texas.

TxDOT’s Improvement Plan

TxDOT has released a $24 million improvement plan that will be implemented over the next 3 years in Dallas County in an effort to reach the goal of zero traffic fatalities per year by 2050. Some of these initiatives include adding rumble strips, improving barriers and pavement markings, repairing and replacing traffic signals, and installing speed displays showing how fast drivers are going.

There is only so much the city can do for roadways to ensure they are forgiving, and according to Clemens, a lot of the problem boils down to driver behavior. It’s important to be aware and observant when you’re on the road, and keep those distractions, like cell phones, put away.

Wonderful experience from the moment of walking in, they make you feel so welcomed. The little details of even putting your name on the whiteboard welcoming you. All along the way they keep you informed on the progress, asking detailed questions to get the full picture of your individual needs. The team you're assigned, all work together to make a stressful and scary situation easy to deal with. Kelsey, Aaron and Abraham ate the best!! Thank you again 💓.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
