Dogs of all kinds can offer a world of happiness to pet owners in Texas.

Can eating while driving cause accidents?

Like many, you may mistakenly believe that distracted driving has only recently become an issue affecting those on Houston’s roads and highways. That assumption no doubt comes from the notion that when referring to distracted driving, people are typically talking about those who use a cell phone while operating a vehicle.

Aggressive driving may not always be the result of road rage.

Aggressive driver responds to fender bender with violent attack

A Houston traffic accident can lead to anxiety or anger for the person who is not at fault.
