We all know that in Texas people seem to drive like they are always in a hurry. If you’ve ever been behind the wheel of a vehicle in the state of Texas you know how crazy things can be. If you’re on the highway and not doing 10+ over the speed limit you better stay out of the left lane because you will have people on your bumper and probably flipping you the bird. Which is why it wasn’t exactly shocking to see that Texas ranked in the top 15 of the most dangerous states to drive in. 

Obviously, we all want to arrive at our destination as quickly as possible, but there are some Texas drivers that are more worried about speed than they are worried about safety. We need to all be more careful on Texas roads; we hear reports about fatalities on the roads way too often.
