The roads in Texas, specifically Houston, Texas, have deteriorated to the point of constituting a driving hazard to Texas drivers. According to a study by CoPilot, nearly one-third of Houston roads, 28.6 percent, are in poor condition. 28.6 percent is worse than the national average of 26.4 percent. Moreover, 7.9 percent of Houston’s freeways and interstates are in poor condition, and 40.8 percent of Houston’s arterial roadways are in poor condition. These statistics establish that Houston roads are some of the poorest maintained roads in America.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published a study indicating that a substantial amount of accidents occurred due to “environment-related critical reasons.” At least 52,000 accidents were attributed to poor road conditions, including slick roads, glare, view obstructions, fog/rain/snow, other highway-related conditions, signs/signals, and road design. Such conditions, if not taken care of, represent a serious danger to the lives of everyone on the roads.
