Given the increased reliance on technology, cell phones continue to be one of the leading causes of car accidents in our state and across the nation. Distracted driving is a leading cause of accidents, and cell phones are a major distraction. Drivers who use their cell phones while driving are four times more likely to be involved in an accident.
Drunk driving is another major cause of auto collisions in Missouri. Drunk drivers are a danger to themselves and to others on the road. Every year, thousands of people are killed in drunk driving accidents.
Failing to yield is also a leading factor in many vehicle collisions. Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way can cause serious accidents. When making turns, always yield to oncoming traffic.
