How many people die in car crashes in Missouri?

Tesla owners: Autopilot does not mean self-driving

Recently in California, the owner of a Tesla Model S crashed into a fire engine on the highway. Authorities said the man had been using the vehicle’s Autopilot driver assistance system at the time of the crash.

Tesla owners in Missouri and elsewhere have a responsibility to properly and safely use the Autopilot feature in their vehicles.

Tips to avoid being the target of road rage

Have you ever driven to or from work and felt like you had trouble keeping your eyes open?

If so, then you are like most drivers in Missouri and elsewhere, who have driven drowsy at least once during their lifetime. At the law office of McShane & Brady, LLC, we understand that drowsy driving is not merely an inconvenience – it can endanger your life and others.
