How could a San Antonio Texas Wrong Way Traffic Accident affect you?
We have previously told you in our traffic ticket blog about San Antonio’s effort to reduce the number of San Antonio Wrong Way Traffic Traffic Accidents and Ticket Citations on our highways. As we have said it is important to remember that TransGuide, the people who operate the signs that alert drivers about construction, congestion, and missing individuals, logs and reports statistics on wrong-way drivers. They found that before the task force installed the flashing “Wrong Way” LED signs, there were 31 instances of wrong-way driving on 281. This was during the period between March 2011 and February 2012. From March-June of 2012, signs were installed; after that, specifically from July 2012 to January 2013, there were only 13. That’s a big difference, and a sign of success as well as fewer San Antonio Wrong-Way Traffic Ticket Citations.
