The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control indicates that most fatal motor vehicle accidents in the U.S. occur in rural areas. This may be due to improper maintenance of roads because they are not traveled as frequently, or they may be poorly lit and have signs that are hidden by overgrown trees and bushes. These circumstances can create a lethal combination.
In North Texas, the chances for a catastrophic or fatal accident are increased dramatically due to the large number of trucks hauling gravel and rock, and tanker trucks loaded with oil and gas. When these oversized vehicles are poorly maintained, or driven by unskilled truckers, they pose a hazard to every driver, motorcyclist, bicyclist and pedestrian.
