Missouri sees rise in distracted driving crashes

Residents in Missouri who are concerned about their safety and the safety of their family members on the road may often wonder why they continue to see so many people texting while behind the wheel. All around the country, awareness about the dangers of distracted driving has prompted almost all states to enact legislation expressly banning such actions by drivers. Only Missouri, Montana and Arizona have yet to pass any laws making texting and driving illegal.

What qualifies as an autonomous vehicle?

If you are like a lot of people in Missouri, you may have a lot of questions about self-driving cars. Are they really safe? Can they really eliminate traffic accidents as touted?

Instead, as Techopedia reports, there are multiple levels of autonomy in vehicle technology.

Fatal crash in Missouri blamed on blowing snow

It is always tragic when a young person loses her life as a result of a motor vehicle accident, whether as a passenger or as the driver.

The family members of a 19-year-old woman killed in an accident on a Missouri highway last Monday will always wonder if she could have avoided her untimely death by wearing a seat belt or waiting until weather conditions were more favorable.

Can prescription drugs lead to a DUI?

Missouri residents often have to take over-the-counter or prescription medications to take care of issues ranging from infections to allergies and more. However, some of these products can interfere with your ability to drive. But just how bad is it to drive while under the influence of prescription drugs?
