How is Texas impacted economically? According to the NHTSA in 2000 (the most recent year for which data is available) Texas lost $19.8 billion dollars to our economy due to collisions. The economic cost to Texas, just due to speed related crashes was 3.5 billion. (see chart below)
Automobile fatalities are the number one
cause of on-the-job deaths. That ends up costing the average employer nearly
$120,000 per employee death.
