Texas drivers have probably noticed the impact of distracted driving while on the road. Most people have probably seen another driver texting, looking at his or her phone, putting on make-up or eating while driving. These drivers are probably driving at erratic speeds, swerving and placing everyone else at an increased risk for an accident. There is clear evidence that distracted driving has had a significant impact on the overall rate of auto accidents.
Working on a Texas oil field can pose considerable risks. According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1,566 workers have died on the job from 2008 to 2017.
Spring in Texas means moderate temperatures and sunny days, which means there will be more people out enjoying the freedom of the open road on their motorcycles. Naturally, this means there will be an increase in the number of motorcycle accidents as well. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are preventable and are the result of motorists failing to properly share the road.
