CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Fatalities on the roadway can affect many people.

#EndTheStreakTX is a new campaign initiated by is TxDOT with hope to prevent car collisions on Texas roads.

Here at home and surrounding areas, many fatal accidents have taken place.

The Corpus Christi Police Department along with other first responders are taking part in the campaign.

Officials hope drivers do their part to be safe before getting into a vehicle.

“There's nothing more tragic than losing a family member to an accident that may have been preventable,” says Lt. Michael Pena.

Officers say you can take part in the campaign by buckling up, driving the speed limit, not driving under the influence and put your phone away.

By doing these things, you could prevent hurting yourself or someone else.
