Texas drivers: watch out for fatigued and distracted driving

Driver fatigue and distracted driving are two of the biggest issues that can lead to motor vehicle accidents on the nation's highways. Truck drivers are not the only drivers who may be hit with fatigue and distraction problems, however. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that approximately 100,000 accidents comprised of all types of vehicles occur each year in this country because of fatigue or distracted driving.

Police in Texas charge man hauling cattle with DWI

Police in Texas say that a 21-year-old man was driving a truck loaded with 38 cattle while under the influence of drugs on Oct. 9. The man was taken into custody following a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 84 according to a Littlefield Police Department press release. After being booked, the man was turned over to the custody of the Lamb County Jail. Initial reports do not indicate if the man's bail has been set, but they do reveal that a sample of his blood was drawn for toxicology testing.

Which type of disability benefits is available to you?

If you cannot work due to a serious illness or grave physical injury, you would be eligible for certain types of benefits through the Social Security Administration. Disabled Texas individuals often have a difficult time securing the benefits they deserve, even with a valid claim. It is beneficial for you to understand as much as possible about these benefits before you apply.

Drivers often overestimate the safety benefits of technology

A growing number of Texas car buyers are choosing vehicles equipped with advanced systems designed to anticipate and prevent accidents. However, this technology may not be as effective as they believe. This was the conclusion reached by researchers from the American Automobile Association's Foundation for Traffic Safety after they polled 1,200 owners of 2016 and 2017 passenger vehicles equipped with advanced driver assistance systems.
