In 2012, someone died on Texas roads every day. One person was killed every two hours and 35 minutes. Approximately 45 percent of the victims were not wearing seat belts.
Drivers who buckle up, avoid distractions, control their speed and never get behind the wheel while tired improve their chances of getting from Point A to Point B safely.
Remember, though, that other drivers’ actions can affect your safety as much as your own actions can. Texas Mutual encourages employers to teach and enforce these defensive driving behaviors in their workplaces.
