Texas is experiencing growing numbers of accidents involving bicycle riders on the state's highways. Some experts recommend the passage of a safe passing law that will regulate how motorized vehicles treat cyclists and will promote safe sharing of roadways with cyclists. The most recent incident in the state resulted in the death on Sept. 10 of a 19-year-old man who was struck by a vehicle on a road in Mercedes. A woman was killed and another suffered serious injuries from a motor vehicle collision a few weeks before that on a road outside of Harlingen.

In Texas and other states, the concept of co-parenting has gained preference in caring for the children after a divorce. With the start of a new school year, it is a propitious time for those recently settling their divorce to discuss their most important ongoing responsibility, i.e., the daily care of their minor children. Planning the highlights of events for the next year can help the children to be more secure in knowing that there will be a structure and a relative sense of certainty to their activities.
