There are certain actions that defensive drivers can take in order to increase their safety. Unfortunately, there are some fatal motor vehicle accidents that even the safest of drivers cannot avoid, such as being struck while stopped at a traffic light. According to reports, a family in Texas is mourning the loss of two children after such an accident.
