Weekly Roadwork Report

TxDOT Reaching Out To Motorists At Event On Monday To Mark National Seat Belt Day.

Statistics show seat belt usage in fatal crashes in NE Texas is at a low

WHEN:

Monday, November 14, 2022, from 10:00 am until noon

WHERE:                      

Texarkana Travel Information Center, 1200 W. I-30, Texarkana

WHY:  

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) wants to drive home the importance of buckling up amid startling seat belt statistics in NE Texas. So, TxDOT’s rollover simulator and the public information officer will be on-site to discuss what motorists can do to help end 22 years of daily deaths on Texas roads.

ATLANTA — Texas recently marked 22 years of daily deaths on its roads, and statistics show that seat belt use in northeast Texas fatal crashes is at a low. Yet, half of those killed didn’t buckle up in our region’s first half of 2022. 

We hope you’ll stop by and help us spread the word about this disturbing trend in our area and #EndTheStreakTX – TxDOT’s campaign to help end the streak of daily deaths that have plagued our state for over 22 years.
