Intoxicated drivers pose a threat to road users in Missouri every day. To address this problem, Volvo Cars has announced a series of safety technology upgrades for its vehicles starting in 2020. By the early 2020s, the automaker plans to use cameras to monitor operators for signs of drunk driving. When the system detects erratic behavior or operation, it could automatically reduce speed and eventually park the car in a safe place.
Last year, Missouri voters approved the legalization of medical marijuana. One day, we might well join other states that have legalized recreational marijuana. Those states allow adults to possess and consume – and in some cases grow – small amounts of cannabis for their personal use.
Whether it is the March Madness Final Four, the World Series or the Stanley Cup finals, there are certain events that make spectators of even the most casual sports fans. Certainly, the Super Bowl is one of those events for many Missouri residents and others around the world. While watching the game is the first priority of most of the audience, others view the event as a big party and an opportunity to drink. The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety has recently announced a campaign to keep as many drunk drivers off the road on Super Bowl Sunday as possible.
