Is there anything I shouldn't do after an accident?

Most residents of the Killeen and Fort Hood areas have some idea of what to do should they get into an accident. For example, they probably know that they need to remain at the scene, try to help anyone who is hurt and call the police at the appropriate time.

Can I get SSD if I am also getting workers' compensation?

Like the other states in the country, Texas has a workers' compensation program. This program allows most Killeen or Fort Hood workers to collect benefits for lost wages should they suffer a work-related injury that leaves them debilitated and unable to return to their jobs.

When you were a child, you might have imagined a future in which vehicles drove themselves or there were flying cars. While we have yet to get that far, self-driving cars have now become a reality, although there are still many issues to work out until autonomous vehicles become commonplace. You and other Texans may wonder just how safe this brand-new technology is.

To follow up on a previous post, a Killeen resident can be charged with driving while intoxicated, referred to as a DWI or, sometimes, an OWI, if he or she operates a motor vehicle while "intoxicated" on any drug or alcohol. This includes one's own legally prescribed medication, taken according to the doctor's instructions.

As you take your first dose, you notice the warning on the label that tells you not to operate a vehicle after taking the medicine. However, you need to drive to get to work and run your errands. It is simply not feasible to rely on others for rides or take public transportation, especially if you must take this medication long-term. What are the dangers that you and other Texans might face while driving after taking certain medications?
