Texas Roads Were the Deadliest in America in 2022

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (“NHTSA”), there were 4,496 fatalities on Texas roadways in 2022. That’s about 100 more deaths than the next state, California, a state with approximately 10,000,000 more inhabitants than Texas. A recent publication from the Texas Department of Transportation’s #EndTheStreakTx campaign states that the last day without a fatality on Texas roadways was November 7, 2000.

One would think that such a staggeringly high fatality rate was due to Texas’ large amount of major cities, chiefly, Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Austin, and San Antonio. However, more than 51% of 2022 roadway fatalities in Texas were in rural areas. This was in part due to the lack of dedicated trauma centers in rural Texas. This is a subject of great concern in Texas.
