Fatal Wrecks in Kansas City
Of all the plausible reasons why the car accident rate in Missouri has steadily increased for the past several years, the directly proportional surge in the state’s rate of distracted driving seems the most likely. The amount of drivers who are unwaveringly glued to their cellphones even when they are driving has multiplied exponentially in the last ten years. Despite a reduction in their use among teen drivers, roughly 14% of all Missouri accidents are the direct and irrefutable result of cell phone use.
