How to survive driving in Texas in 6 easy steps

Driving across Texas can be made less stressful and easier if certain things are understood. First off traffic is bad in most places, in addition some of the drivers aren’t the greatest. Texas is also a large state and someone can drive for hours between towns. There are also many things that can distract a driver such as roadside attractions, cyclists and the natural beauty of the state.

Key Takeaways:

  • Anyone who complains about driving long distance in the northeast or midwest has obviously never taken I-20 from Texas to New Mexico.
  • Imagine the longest stretch of road going east to west in the United States. Now imagine it’s longer.
  • You’ll need at least a full day to go from Texarkana to El Paso – all while staying inside Texas’ borders – and most people aren’t crazy enough to do that.
