Dear Texas Resident:The ability to operate a motor vehicle is an important privilege in a state as large as Texas with over 225,000 miles of roadways. Whether you are a new driver or a new resident of Texas, always remember that driving a motor vehicle is one of the most dangerous things most people do. Every year 3,000 people are killed in traffic crashes in Texas and over 82,000 are seriously injured.Today more than ever, you need to be alert for distracted and impaired drivers operating motor vehicles. A two-sec-ond distraction can kill and permanently injure you and others.Respectfully, Steven C. McCraw, Director Texas Department of Public Safety
