Drivers of commercial trucks are not allowed to text and drive

Most Texans are probably aware that texting and driving is dangerous. Texting is one of many distractions that can take a driver's attention away from the road and cause that driver to create unsafe conditions on the road. Drivers who are distracted by texting and other diversions can fail to see other cars, pedestrians or bicycles in the road, may cause collisions when their distractions force them to brake too close to other vehicles and can miss important safety signage that could put others in dangerous situations.

Could a vehicle defect have caused my truck accident?

Vehicles are complex machines that must perform a variety of functions in order to keep their passengers safe and carry them to their destinations. Many Texas residents own personal vehicles that they must maintain to ensure that the cars, trucks, vans, and sport utility vehicles are in their best working order. Large vehicles like semis and 18-wheelers also must be maintained so that they may perform safely; when big rigs and other large commercial vehicles experience mechanical problems, the results can be deadly for their drivers and other motorists who must share the roads with them.

Semi-truck involved in crash with school bus

Many Texas students relish the opportunity to school-related field trips. Not only do the excursions provide kids with a chance to experience additional enrichment on the topics they are learning about in school but such trips also get them out of their classrooms for a break from the books. However, recently a group of Texas fourth graders had a very scary experience when the bus they were riding on during a field trip was involved in a crash with a semi-truck.
