Texas is a friendly state.
For those of you who have never lived in Texas, Texans are a pretty helpful and friendly bunch. We have strong opinions about a lot of things, but it still amazes me how many people say “hello” or stop to give you a hand (I grew up on the East Coast, where this Southern-hospitality type of stuff isn’t as common, so pardon me for my amazement at people being good neighbors). I’ve had women follow me to my car to tell us where to buy a certain product for cheaper, a man stop to tell me the grill I was about to buy was an excellent choice, and my neighbors are some of the friendliest people I know. I love Texas and I never knew just how great of a state it is until I lived here.
We have a lot of roads under construction here in San Antonio.
Anyone that lives here knows we love our roadworks. Its a constant thing here in San Antonio as they attempt to improve the quality of the roads and take into account our continued growth. Where there are roadworks, there are dangers. Also, if you got in a car accident in Orlando, you should know that holes, steel plates on the road, accidents, flying debris from various construction vehicles – it takes a toll on our cars and trucks. When someone gets hurt in a moto accident, it usually takes a long time to clear the mob and the traffic around the site until the ambulance comes and carries away the injured and police sweeps the accident site with the help of lawyers found in ericramoslaw.com/san-antonio-18-wheeler-accident-lawyer site. Sometimes, those things bring about the dreaded situation. It’s rush hour and you’re broke down in the middle of a highway. What’s a commuter to do?
