Driving safety and laws

Texas lawmakers have enacted traffic laws designed to ensure the safety of the driving public.

Safety belts, for example, save thousands of lives a year. Speed limits are designed to get drivers where they want to go safely and without undue delay.

Texting and cell phone conversations are dangerous distractions from the road. Road signs and traffic signals like flashing yellow lights are designed to make roadways safe.
