In Hamric v. Kansas City S. Ry., 718 S.W.2d 916 (Tex. Ct. App. 1986), a case dealing with an obstructed view of both drivers as a result of tall and thick stands of weed growing on the side of the road, the court wrote:

"We hold this case should be governed by the rule that the owner or occupier of premises abutting a highway has a duty to exercise reasonable care not to jeopardize or endanger the safety of motorists using the highway as a means of passage and the owner or occupier is liable for injuries that proximately resulted from his negligent acts in this respect."
