If it's the same price if you went there in person, I'd like it in my state.

Seems like this is a "premium" service that is justified to charge a "premium" to receive.

***It sounds like a good idea for the public but there can be abuses with this system. TxDOT be careful what you provide. ***It should be free but they will be charging too much for it anyway.
Drive vehicles with high mpg, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

This will save the hassle of having to go down to the police department to physically pick up the crash report.

Michigan has a similar program with the Michigan State Police. But you must get the accident code from the reporting officer at the time of the accident to go on line to find the report.

Good, but of no value to those outside of Texas and hopefully never needed by most Texans.
