Preventing Wrong Way Crashes in Texas

Everyone knows that wrong-way drivers are bad news. Crashes resulting from wrong-way drivers are more likely to cause serious injuries and fatalities than other types of car accidents.

People driving on the wrong side of the road are usually driving while impaired and these crashes tend to occur at night when it is darkest. Drivers going the wrong way are especially common in large cities like Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas, as well as Austin, with its many one-way roads and high traffic volume.
