Road Deaths on the Rise in Houston, and in Texas Itself

At least one person has died on Texas roads every day since November 7, 2000. Fatalities are on the rise despite the Texas Department of Transportation’s and the Texas Transportation Commission’s efforts to “end the streak.”

Road fatalities are on the rise in Houston, Texas itself. As of December 20, 2019, Houston police had already responded to 602 fatalities on Houston roads, equaling 2018 with 11 days to go in 2019.

Authorities state that their goal is to have zero traffic fatalities in Texas by the year 2050. To crackdown on traffic fatalities, authorities propose lower speed limits, statewide hands-free laws, and improved signage on streets. However, the fact remains that Texas, and Houston specifically, have the deadliest roads in America.
