There’s very little comfort for drivers in the recent news that traffic fatalities in Texas dropped a little in 2018 compared to 2017, as the Insurance Council of Texas recently reported.

The decline was modest and came after almost 10 years of soaring increases, according to the council’s numbers. The number of fatalities on Texas roads was 3,567 last year, down from 3,720 in 2017, a reduction of 157, a little more than 4 percent.
