The State of Texas records over 3,000 traffic fatalities a year. TxDOT urges all drivers to observe safe driving practices:

  • Be courteous to other drivers
  • Always buckle up, all riders, day and night
  • Pay attention, focus on driving when behind the wheel, put the phone away or turn it off
  • Drive to conditions, slow down when weather conditions are bad
  • Stop for all stop signs and red lights
  • Pass carefully when it's legal and safe
  • Never drink & drive. No under the influence of drugs or medications that cause drowsiness
  • Slow down or move over for flashing lights; a law enforcement vehicle, emergency vehicle, tow truck or TxDOT vehicle that may be stopped along the side of the road.
