Certain music can increase the risk of car accidents

Most people in Texas can easily identify some of the most common distracted driving habits, such as talking on the phone, texting and eating. However, many drivers completely overlook a common but serious problem behind the wheel—listening to music. Listening to music is actually linked to a higher rate of car accidents. According to recent research, certain songs are more dangerous than others.

Houston has a high rate of distracted driving

Many people realize just how dangerous it can be to drink and drive, but what about distracted driving? Though a lot of people understand the risks associated, they may still engage in the practice, not realizing that some experts believe distracted driving to be just as serious as driving while intoxicated. That's why Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and AAA Texas decided to launch a campaign to educate the public about this potentially dangerous practice.

Road rage is a big problem in Texas: Know the signs

As a licensed driver in Texas, you are legally obligated to adhere to all traffic and safety laws. In fact, the same goes for all other motorists with whom you share the road. The problem is that the only person's behavior you can control is your own. You have no way of knowing what another driver is thinking or planning to do. Whether you're able to swiftly and safely react if a problem arises depends on many factors. 

Coping with the sudden loss of a loved one? This might help

The day your cell phone rang, you might have suspected there was something wrong because it was an unfamiliar number, and it was the middle of the day, so all your family members were either at work or school. You remembered that one of your loved ones was, in fact, traveling that day. You had a strong feeling that you should answer the call, so you did, and that's when your life changed forever.

Have distracted driving laws helped stop crashes?

Most people agree that texting or using a mobile phone while driving a car can be dangerous. Lawmakers across the country have passed laws forbidding the use of a cellphone to varying degrees while behind the wheel. Texas passed such legislation just a couple of years ago. However, experts are unsure as to how much these laws may be helping to stop distracted driving.

Be especially careful when you enter Texas intersections

If you drive on Texas roadways, you already know how busy and stressful traffic can be, especially if you're traveling through a large city such as Houston. There are definitely situations that increase your risk for personal injury. For instance, any time you approach an intersection, you're at risk for collision if there are other vehicles nearby. There is also increased danger if you're driving and there are pedestrians in the area.

Were you involved in a collision caused by tire issues?

When you own a car, you must do, or, at least, should do, all sorts of things to keep your vehicle functioning at its greatest potential. Various factors, such as whether you purchased a car straight off the showroom floor or snagged a good deal on a pre-owned vehicle, may affect how well your car runs and how long it lasts. Certain issues can pose safety risks if you, the car owner, do not stay on top of them.
