Texas has miles and miles of highways. With all those roads, thankfully the Lone Star State does not rank at the top for the most dangerous highways in the country. California ranks number one in that category. But maybe you’re curious, what are the most dangerous roads in Texas?
If you travel near any of the major cities, take note of some of the most dangerous highways.
Topping the List in the San Antonio Area
A recent study showed that a 14-mile stretch of I-410 claimed most of the 176 fatalities that occurred from 2013 to 2015. The study also showed that I-35 is on the list and in the San Antonio area, there were nine accidents near mile marker 101 that resulted in 13 fatalities. Eleven more crashes occurred near mile 128 that resulted in 11 total fatalities.
Two areas of Interstate 10 also ranked in the top 25 on the list. U.S. Highway 90, FM 2252, SL 13, and SL 1604 were also on the list. As many San Antonio residents may know, some of these are in high traffic areas which increases the risk for major collisions.
What drivers can do on dangerous roads
Knowing which areas are at a greater risk for accidents can help drivers be more aware and possibly avoid the need for auto body repair and reduce the risk for injury or death. They should always be aware of their surroundings and other vehicles.
In high traffic areas, it’s especially important to watch your speed, watch for road signs, as well as erratic or careless drivers. High speed can lead to serious accidents (and we know how SA drivers love to speed). Slowing down can give you more reaction time if you need to drive defensively.

Nearly 20 years ago, a new collision center, ProCare Automotive and Collision, opened its doors in San Antonio. Today, our company experiences growth while maintaining a focus on high quality auto body repair. We are now in cities across central, south, and southeast Texas.
ProCare now offers collision repair in other cities such as Austin, Houston, and Victoria. We chose for our next location to return where it all started.
SW Military Drive Collision Center
ProCare started in 1999 with a location on SE Military Drive in San Antonio. After years of expanding, ProCare opened its 29th location on SW Military Drive down from the original body shop. The goal of the company’s fifth San Antonio location is to make high-quality collision repair more convenient for southwest San Antonio residents.
This new collision center adds about 20 new employees to the more than 550 who work for ProCare. This includes technicians, estimators, customer service staff, and office staff.
High-quality auto body repair
ProCare offers collision repair, auto paint services, and paintless dent repair. Auto technicians train on industry standards in repair from vehicle makers. As a result, our team has the skills to repair any vehicle.
Among the certifications our shops hold is the iCar Gold Class certification. Most noteworthy, the collision repair industry considers iCar Gold Class the highest training achievement. Our technicians train for this every year. Also, we designate skilled experts in four key collision repair roles. Those roles are estimator, non-structural technician, steel structural technician, and refinish technician.

Our goal is to make auto body repair hassle-free so you can get back on the road.
Technology changes just about everything. It provides safety features on cars and added conveniences. Your phone also helps you make informed decisions about what auto body shop to choose.
Your smartphone can now make your collision repair simpler. ProCare Collision offers a smartphone estimating tool that customers can use anywhere, and get a preliminary estimate without stepping into the shop.
Use your phone to get a collision repair estimate
When you have car damage and need repairs made quickly, this is a fast way to start the process. You can have the estimate tool texted to you from the ProCare Collision website.
To start, take photos of the damage, submit them through the tool, and receive an estimate via email within 24 hours. Then, you’ll have an idea of a baseline cost for your vehicle repair with ProCare.
Benefits of a smartphone estimating tool
This tool helps you get the repair process started right away. It can be done at any time of the day or night that is convenient to you. Once you have an idea of the cost and what it may take to repair the vehicle, you can begin working with the ProCare Collision team to have the repairs started.
Keep in mind that estimates provided from photos are only a preliminary estimate based on visible damage and that could change once a technician inspects the car more thoroughly. There could potentially be damage that isn’t visible to the eye, such as mechanical or to the car’s computer system.
For companies with fleet vehicles, using the Smartphone Estimating Tool can be beneficial so it doesn’t take vehicles or the employee away from work on the job.
ProCare launched the estimating tool to make the auto body repair process more efficient and hassle free. Use the tool to get your free estimate and we’ll get you back on the road.
