3 tips to avoid distractions while driving

Whether you are sitting in traffic in downtown Houston or heading out of town for a long weekend, driving can often seem like a boring task. During the commute to work or a day-long drive across the state, it can become tempting to engage in other tasks in order to alleviate the boredom.

Why are semitrucks so dangerous on the roads?

There's no doubt that large, commercial semitrucks significantly increase the number of highway deaths and injuries here in the United States. As reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), big trucks were responsible for 8 percent of the automobiles involved in fatal collisions in 2015. Of the 3,744 large trucks that got into those fatal wrecks, 73 percent were combination trucks, i.e., semitrucks.

Is there a safe way to text-and-drive?

There is a very clear answer to the question of whether it's safe to text and drive. The answer is, no, it's not safe to use a smartphone while driving because it requires you to take your eyes off the road and the traffic obstacles that surround you. If driving blind is not enough to sway you from engaging in this dangerous behavior, it's also against the law to text-and-drive in Texas.
