Aside from the potential damage to your vehicle and cost of repairs, there is also the chance that you or your loved ones may be seriously injured.

Weather conditions, vehicle malfunctions and problems with the road surface can all contribute to such incidents. However, many crashes are caused by driver negligence or irresponsibility.

One such case was suspected in Texas recently.

A man pled guilty to his ninth DWI charge last week and was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
