CONCERNS OF TEXAS-MEXICO BORDER COMMUNITIES

With or without the North American Free Trade Agreement an increase in trade between the United States and Mexico is imminent. This increase in commerce will lead to an increase in traffic, which, in turn, could create problems in terms of highway safety, especially along the Texas-Mexico border. One important issue concerning traffic safety is addressed specifically, public concerns. A questionnaire was prepared and distributed throughout the Texas-Mexico border region to determine the public's main concerns and opinions regarding traffic safety and present driving conditions in the border region. Conclusions were drawn from a total of 724 responses received.
