TxDOT campaign promotes summer driving safety
Summertime in Texas is the height of travel season, which means scores of people will be hitting the highways for long road trips, state park visits or lazy lake days.
Traveling long distances can put drivers at risk of falling asleep, getting distracted or becoming impatient. The Texas Department of Transportation is reminding motorists to stay alert and avoid drowsy or aggressive driving while behind the wheel this summer.
Be safe as you travel the state's highways during the busy summer driving season.
Take precautions to prevent drowsy driving, especially when traveling long distances.
Be patient and avoid driving aggressively or engaging with those who do.
