Texas law enforcement summer crackdown

The last thing anyone wants in Texas is to get pulled over by the police. But I can promise you that if you obey all traffic laws, the cops won't want to pull you over. The only reason cops will pull you over is if you've committed a violation or if they see something that needs to be fixed. But there are certain violations that the Texas Department of Public Safety will crack down on.

As the summer months approach here in Texas, people often forget some of the traffic laws. When the sun is shining, people like to drive a little faster and often get distracted. Police officers deal with car accidents all the time, some of which are fatal, so there is a special emphasis on safe driving. The last thing a police officer wants to do is tell your loved ones that you won't be coming home because of a fatal accident.

It is important to drive safely on Texas roads

In Texas, there are speed limits that allow drivers to drive at high speeds, but we have to be careful when driving at such high speeds. It is very important to always be alert when you are behind the wheel.
