The trend observed in the motor vehicle accidents in Mission is slightly different from the trend in the total number of crashes that occurred in the state of Texas. Data provided by the Texas state DOT showed that there was an increase in the total number of crashes for the state of Texas from 2014 to 2015. However, the trend in the number of accidents from 2015 to 2018 is closely related to the trend in the data provided by the state DOT. During this period, the price of crude oil dropped globally and there was a corresponding reduction in the price of gasoline.
This led to an increase in the number of motorists who fueled their cars. Consequently, there was an increase in traffic and the number of crashes rose significantly. But as gas prices rose again in 2017 and 2018, a decline in the number of accidents occurred. Another reason for the reduction in accidents is the increase in the enlightenment campaign and the seminars carried out by the state DOT to reduce the occurrence of accidents caused by divided attention on the road.
