TxDOT Urges Drivers to ‘END THE STREAK’ of Daily Fatalities

Every single day since November 7th, 2000, at least one person has died on Texas roadways. That’s a total of 5,478 consecutive days of at least one fatality. It’s a grim statistic, and one that TxDOT wishes to change.

In an effort to break this deadly 15 year streak, the Texas Department of Transportation has enacted an “End The Streak” campaign. Their goal is to raise awareness to this issue and remind drivers to stay alert, obey traffic laws, and take personal responsibility behind the wheel.

TxDOT is encouraging people to publicly show their commitment to the cause on their social media pages by sharing the facts and information they will continue to post throughout November, and by using the hashtag #EndTheStreakTX. They have also made profile pictures available that you can use for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, further spreading the message about safe driving.

Please visit TxDOT’s “End The Streak” website for more information.
