Drunk driving accidents can ruin holidays in Texas

During the holidays in Texas, people spend more time than usual on the road, driving to and from various social events and family gatherings. From shoppers to daily work commuters, tourists, visitors and more, the increase in holiday traffic sometimes results in motor vehicle collisions. Drunk driving accidents are also a concern for many, especially those who have suffered injury because of another person's choice to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking alcohol.
