There was not a single day last year where there was not a traffic death. Not one.
Texas leads the nation in traffic deaths. Over the last 10 years more people have died on roads in Texas than any other state. Looking at 2018 there were 3,639 deaths and 14,908 serious injuries as the direct result of driving accidents.
- 1 Person dies every 2.5 hours from an accident in Texas.
- 1 Person is injured every 2 minutes.
- 1 Crash is reported every 58 seconds.
At DriveTexas our goal is to connect drivers to tools and resources that can help lower that number. The majority of crashes and deaths are avoidable, and equipping Texans with the tools to help avoid becoming a tragic statistic is our priority.
