Car Crash Statistics You Cannot Ignore

Grill of Car

When we’re on the road, it’s easy to get distracted by many pressing issues: traffic, school schedules for children, e-mails from an employer, and a coffee for the morning commute are just a few examples. However, it’s essential to remember that driving safely on North Texas roads can make the difference between life and death.

The Texas Department of Transportation compiles a series of powerful statistics regarding annual traffic accidents across the state. Some of this data will come as a shock to you, we guarantee!

1.) In 2020, 1 person was killed every 2 hours and 15 minutes on Texas roads.

2.) A car crash that qualified as reportable occurred every 1 minute and 7 seconds across the state.

Perhaps the most staggering statistic is this:

3.) Not a single day went by during the year 2020 where a driver, passenger or pedestrian did not die on a Texas road.

Safety is always your best option and your highest priority. Although it’s incredibly easy to get distracted on the road, take the time to put your phone away and focus on what’s happening around you. It could very well save your life!
