Auto accidents caused by older drivers often due to distraction

Distraction is a major safety concern to Texas drivers and others across the country. One of the main sources of this dangerous behavior is the use of cellphones. Studies have found that for elderly individuals, distracted driving is a significant issue. Any time a person is not focused on safe driving, he or she is at an elevated risk of causing auto accidents. 

Motorcycle accident kills 1, other driver at fault

Texas is home to many motorcycle enthusiasts, and especially during the summer months when the weather is nice and there is lots to see and do, it is not unusual for passenger vehicles to share the road with motorcycles. Drivers must remain alert, as motorcycles are much smaller than most other vehicles and are usually difficult to see. Even experienced riders are at risk to be hurt or killed in a motorcycle accident, often in the blink of an eye. 

Vehicles getting safer, but auto accidents still major concern

Many vehicles now come with various types of technology that is intended to keep drivers safe and help them make safer choices behind the wheel. Many of these tools were designed in response to growing safety concerns related to distracted driving and the many auto accidents it causes. Despite vehicles that are safer and more advanced than ever, the rate of Texas auto accidents involving pedestrians and bicycles continues to rise.
