2021 is the Deadliest Year on Austin Roads

2021 has been the deadliest ever on Austin’s roads with at least 106 people killed in traffic crashes. The new death toll exceeds the previous record of 105 fatalities in 2015, according to a Texas Department of Transportation database of crash reports filed by police officers. The record death toll in Austin coincides with a sharp rise in fatalities on roads nationwide. During the first half of 2021, more than 20,000 people died in motor vehicle crashes, according to a recent estimate from the NHTSA. That total was up 18.4% over the first half of 2020, the highest increase on record.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
