Waco Is A Dangerous Place To Drive.

As one of the country’s most dangerous cities to drive in — as well as in Texas — Waco is no exception. Due to Waco’s explosive growth rate, road congestion may also escalate as the city’s population grows. The city of Waco is committed to Vision Zero, a program that aims to eliminate all traffic deaths by 2030. Every week, there are about two people killed on Waco streets, so the city has a long way to go.

The number of car accidents in Waco remains relatively unchanged despite the city’s changes. A number of auto accidents are caused by reckless driving, speeding, driving under the influence, and failing to obey traffic laws each year. A Waco auto accident lawyer can assist you in financial compensation if you have been injured in an auto accident.

Waco’s infrastructure is under strain due to its fast-paced growth.

The number of people moving to Texas is on the rise. Waco has benefited greatly from this growth. In 2020 and 2029, Waco will add 1.4 million residents because of jobs, low taxes, a thriving cultural scene, and mild winters, according to local movers ATB Moving. Waco is on track to become a major state city by 2025 as a result of this growth.

More cars are on the road in the Waco metro area because more people live there. Eighty-eight percent of Waco residents use cars for transportation. The high car use rate in Waco may contribute to the city’s ranking as the most dangerous for driving in the nation.

There is a 46% higher risk of being involved in an auto accident on Waco streets than on national streets. Only Jacksonville, Florida has a higher traffic fatality rate among the 15 largest cities, ahead of Fort Worth, San Antonio, Houston, and Austin. In a single year, there were nearly 32,000 crashes in Waco, including 205 fatalities and 959 serious injuries.

In addition to already overburdened infrastructure, the new residents are likely to exacerbate existing problems. Waco needs to spend $212 million more each year to prevent street conditions from declining below current levels. Street maintenance projects will include lane markings, street design, lighting, signage, and police traffic enforcement. This project is aimed at reducing serious traffic injuries in half by 2030 and eliminating traffic fatalities.

Auto accidents in Waco: The primary causes

Over 60% of fatal and severe injury crashes occur on just 8% of Waco’s streets, according to the Waco Department of Transportation. Among the factors contributing to Waco car accidents are speed, driving under the influence, failure to drive in a single lane, and not yielding to left turns.

Based on this analysis, the number of fatalities on Waco city streets is twice as high as on Waco interstates. In addition to infrastructure concerns, McLennan County has a high number of work zone crashes. 2020 was the year in which McLennan County experienced the most work zone crashes in the state.

It may be possible to improve road safety through improvements to roads and infrastructure, but accidents are most often caused by drivers. There is a reputation for recklessness and speed among Waco drivers. Speeders and lane splitters received hundreds of tickets from Waco police in the summer of 2021.

Distracted driving is another major cause of Waco car accidents. Distracted driving causes one out of every five crashes in the state. Texans continue to use social media, email, and text while driving, despite the new law that prohibits texting while driving.

Alcohol-impaired driving is not a recent phenomenon, but distracted driving caused by smartphones is. The DUI crash rate in McLennan County, Texas, is near the top statewide, with an average of around 2,000 crashes per year, including hundreds of injuries and dozens of fatalities. Approximately 25% of the people who die in motor vehicle accidents in Texas are under the influence of alcohol.

When I am involved in an accident, what information should I obtain from the other driver?

After an accident, ask the other driver for their:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Insurance information
  • Name of the insurance company
  • Insurance agent’s name
  • Policy number

Should the other driver refuse to provide information about their insurance, ask them for their home address, driver's license number, and license plate number.

A recording of the driver's license plate number could be enough for the police or insurance company to track the driver down if you cannot safely obtain this information.

Do I Need an Attorney if the Insurance Company is Cooperating?
After an auto accident that results in injury, death, or contested liability, it is usually best to speak to an attorney, even if it appears that your insurance company and the at-fault driver's insurance company are cooperating. Insurers are in business to make money, so this is their motivation. Therefore, it is in their best interest to offer low settlement amounts, limit liability whenever possible, or deny injury claims outright.
In a Texas auto accident lawsuit, how long does it take to get money?

It depends on a number of factors that are unique to your case as to how long it takes to recover money after an auto accident. It may take weeks for your case to be settled, but it may take months or years for it to be resolved. The more complex a case is, the longer it will take to resolve. At Mabry Lewis Law Firm, we will do everything in our power to resolve your case promptly.
