How to avoid drowsy driving

Drivers in Missouri who don't get sufficient sleep before operating a motor vehicle may be at a higher risk for causing an accident. Statistics suggest that up to 6,000 fatal crashes occur each year because of drowsy drivers, and there are many reasons why a person may drive while tired or fatigued. These reasons may include engaging in shift work, taking medication or drinking alcohol before driving.

Distracted driving kills nine people every day

Distracted drivers in Missouri and around the country kill approximately nine people every day according to the National Safety Council, but many road safety experts say that the problem is underreported, and the true daily death toll could be much higher. Economists believe that distracted driving drains the economy of about $40 billion each year, but laws banning cellphone use behind the wheel have done little to curb the practice.

Can you hold a business responsible for serving a drunk driver?

Accidents caused by drunk drivers often cause a number of issues for the people in the other vehicle. First and foremost, there is the physical and emotional trauma that results from a major car crash. Injuries can leave people unable to work for weeks, and financial hardship can result from missed work, vehicle repairs and medical expenses.

What steps to take to ensure safer winter driving

During the Missouri winters, the roads can become icy and wet, putting drivers and others at risk for a collision. With the following tips in mind, though, drivers can be safer behind the wheel and reduce that risk for a crash. It all begins with slowing down, even below the posted speed limit, because the tires lose traction the faster one goes.

Drowsiness spreads when daylight saving time ends

With the end of daylight saving time, everyone gains one hour of sleep. However, it should be noted that the change causes a disruption to the body's internal clock. As the body readjusts, one must expect to feel sleepy for a day or two afterward. Unfortunately, residents of Missouri who must head out on the road after the end of DST run a higher risk for a crash. Drowsiness, after all, dulls one's ability to judge and react to dangers.
