Safe Repairs Save Lives! Support HB 1348

All Texans deserve safe repairs after their vehicles are damaged -- because safe repairs save lives. Please support HB 1348 by Rep. Clardy, which would protect Texas families on our roads.

Too often, the insurance industry pressures repair facilities to cut corners to keep repair costs down. But everything has a cost, and unsafe repairs may end up costing the life of you or your loved ones. 

HB 1348 would ensure quality auto parts are used to make quality repairs that follow accepted safety standards. And it would prevent insurance companies from steering people to their "preferred" body shops. All Texans should have the right to take their vehicle to the body shop of their choice, free from intimidation or coercion from the for-profit insurance industry. 

Our cars and trucks are some of the biggest purchases we make as families and business owners. We count on our vehicles to protect us day in and day out. When disaster strikes, insurance companies need to focus on paying claims in full and on time. They should not be dictating unsafe repairs and playing games to pad their bottom line. There are no shortcuts to safety. Texas needs to take a stand against these dangerous insurance schemes -- the time is now.

Please contact your legislator now to tell them to support HB 1348!
