Fort Worth attorney Kris Barber represents clients throughout the state of Texas who have sustained personal injuries or death due to someone else’s negligence.
A recent study by Texas A&M University’s Transportation Institute and INRIX Inc, found that Dallas-Fort Worth has the 11th most congested highways in the country for weekday commutes. During “rush hours”, it takes Dallas-Fort Worth drivers 27-percent longer than it would during other times of the day.
Major roadways in Fort Worth include Interstate 35W, Interstate 820 Jim Wright Freeway, Interstate 20 Ronald Reagan Memorial Highway, State Highway 121 Airport Freeway, State Highway 170 Alliance Gateway Freeway, State Highway 183 John W. Carpenter Freeway, U.S. Route 287 Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway, Spur 280, Spur 347 and Chisholm Trail Parkway (CTP).
Heavy traffic can lead to more aggression on the road. A study by the American Automotive Association (AAA) found that “80-percent of drivers expressed significant anger, aggression or road rage behind the wheel at least once in the past year” which included extreme examples of purposefully ramming another vehicle and getting out of the car to confront another driver. Researchers have also frequently found a direct correlation between increased congestion and higher auto accident rates along major roadways.
In 2016 alone, Tarrant County saw 34,732 crashes which included 166 fatalities in auto accidents, and 1,237 serious injuries and 12,000 other injuries. Fort Worth saw 16,442 of those accidents, 84 deaths and thousands of injuries. Tarrant County also had 1,611 drunk driving related accidents in 2016, and 621 drunk driving accidents in Fort Worth.
