These dangerous roads are all over our state. For example, Route 285 in West Texas is informally referred to as Death Highway. Due to the boom in oil and gas production, 18-wheeler drivers barrel down roads exceeding the speed limits of 75 miles per hour. Some of the drivers are addicted to illegal drugs and legal opioid medications.

Companies can’t find enough qualified drivers and are even hiring teenagers and those without experience to drive their big rigs. That’s frightening.
