If you are in a car crash in Dallas or somewhere else in Texas, then you are going to be able to collect damages if the other driver was at fault.

He wants to help the planet, but he doesn’t want the bother of plugging in every night and worrying about running out of electricity in less than a hundred miles. He always apologises after he says this because he knows how I feel, but his beliefs are firm. I can see his point. He’s not, and never has been, a crusader for the ecology. I like him anyway.
