In 2016, 947 people were killed in Missouri traffic crashes – 688 were vehicle drivers and passengers, with 62% being unbuckled.  Ninety-four percent of crashes are caused by some form of human error.

Right now, Missouri has a “no texting” law for drivers under 21 years old. But we are challenging all drivers to honor that ban no matter what their age. Reported crashes involving cell phones rose 11 percent in 2016. When a driver is texting and driving they are 23 times more likely to be in a critical incident.

With stats like that it’s time for businesses, communities, government agencies and individuals to accept the challenge.
