Oil and Gas Boom Leads to Increased Traffic Crashes
Texans Have Enjoyed the Prosperity of the Recent Oil and Gas Boom, Just Not the Accidents That Come With It
Royalty checks are nice. Accidents are not. As more oil and gas is pumped from our great State, Texans have seen an increase in the number of accidents on rural roads and Texas highways. Naturally, an increase in the industry requires the infrastructure to support it. We have seen a rapid increase in the number of tankers, 18-wheelers, and trucks that it takes to make the oil fields boom in rural Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation Fatalities in traffic crashes in rural areas of the state accounted for 55.76% of the state’s traffic fatalities. There were 1,883 deaths in rural traffic crashes.
