How Can We #EndTheStreak of Texas Road Fatalities?
Some streaks are made to be broken. This is especially true with Texas’ streak of consecutive days with road fatalities. Last November, the Texas Department of Transportation promoted their #EndTheStreakTX campaign in a solemn observance of 15 years without a deathless day.
The last day without a driving fatality was November 7, 2000. Over that period of time, more than 50,000 people in Texas have lost their lives on our roadways. To put that in context, when the last deathless day occurred in Texas, Bill Clinton was still president. Troy Aikman was still the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. There was no such thing as Twitter, YouTube or Facebook. There are currently high-school students in Texas that have never seen a day without a driving death.
