Proposal to reduce injuries and fatalities in truck accidents

Last year, the U.S. lost more than 10 people per day and more than 80 per week in tractor-trailer crashes. The vast majority of them were drivers and passengers who were not in 18-wheelers. The goal of a bipartisan group of senators and congressional representatives is to reduce the numbers of injuries and fatalities in commercial vehicle accidents in 2018.

Common causes of car crashes

While we typically don't have postcard holidays with snow on Christmas morning and a frosting on Edinburg street lights, we enjoy the season as much as anyone anywhere.

Holiday alert: Auto traffic expected to be heavy

Don't be surprised if you see an increase in traffic rolling in and out of Edinburg over the next few days.
