It is not uncommon for motorists in Texas to share the roadways with large trucks. Semi-trucks play a valuable role in our economy, impacting both intrastate and interstate commerce. However, these massive vehicles can be dangerous. When a driver is overworked, traveling too fast or not attentive, this could present risks to other motorists, even causing a serious collision.
Drivers who don't use their blinkers regularly increase the risk to everyone else on the road. Blinkers, also known as turn indicators or turn signals, serve a critical purpose for communicating with other drivers, as well as pedestrians and those on bikes.
Drunk drivers are a danger to everyone that must share the roads with them. This Fourth of July, many Texas residents may witness intoxicated motorists driving in a manner that is erratic, hazardous and downright dangerous. Though law enforcement officials will do what they can to limit the number of accidents that are caused by these reckless individuals, some will still cause harm and devastation to others when they cause drunk driving accidents.
