Understanding whiplash-associated disorders

Most people in Missouri have heard references to whiplash, often made in a joking manner when conversations about vehicle accidents are had. However, whiplash or whiplash-associated disorders really are no laughing matters. Understanding what whiplash really is and what it may contribute to is important for anyone who might find themselves in a crash, no matter how minor it may seem at first.

What are the different areas of a construction zone?

When you come upon a zone of road construction in Missouri, you may not be thinking about the different areas that comprise each. This is understandable, as you are probably devoting most of your attention to paying attention to the signs and obeying the instructions of flaggers in the interest of navigating the work zone safely. 

Missouri's drunk driving reality

Summertime is generally associated with a feeling of freedom and easy living as school breaks give way to vacations and warm weather encourages people to be out and about more often. Missouri residents love to enjoy area lakes and events with friends and family members during this season. Unfortunately, these celebrations can often be marred by tragedies caused by negligent people. 

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.

Is the condition of a roadway vital to your safety?

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? What really classifies as a self-driving car? This latter question is one that confuses a lot of people. The answer to it is that there really is no single definition of a self-driving car. Instead, as Techopedia reports, there are multiple levels of autonomy in vehicle technology.
