A teen can become a distracted driver by having a teen passenger

Teens are among the riskiest drivers on the road in Missouri and across the nation. In the past, this was simply due to inexperience and the recklessness of youth. Currently, there are many other dangers and temptations that can influence teens when they are behind the wheel. One major problem amongst teens is distracted driving. While this is often categorized as texting and driving or using smartphones for other purposes, research shows that simply being in the vehicle with another teen can cause a crash.

Truck accident statistics show worrisome increase in fatalities

Missourians are fully aware of the dangers of the road. A major factor in these risks is the presence of large trucks. Delivery trucks move commerce back and forth across the nation, provide jobs and are key factors in the economy. Since Missouri is centrally located, it is a hub for trucks. Unfortunately, along with the benefits come certain risks. Being in a semi-truck crash often leads to terrible consequences for those in smaller vehicles. Understanding the statistics is imperative to seeking methods to reduce these accidents.

Apparent failure to yield leads to motorcycle crash and fatality

With the number of motorcycles on the road throughout Missouri, drivers should be so accustomed to them and aware of their presence that they make sure to give them enough room to ride and everyone stays safe. Unfortunately, that does not always happen and there are motorcycle accidents. Given the way a motorcyclist is unprotected by a conventional vehicle, a crash can cause severe injuries and death. Often, these accidents occur because the driver of a normal vehicle has committed failure to yield. When there has been a motorcycle crash with injuries and fatalities, the family must think about the future and consider a legal filing for compensation.

Motor vehicle accidents in construction zones rising in Missouri

There are many dangers on the road in Missouri, but one that is growing at a troubling pace is road construction. Since road projects must be done to maintain, repair and build, they are often unavoidable. While most people adhere to the signs telling them to slow down, there are always drivers who ignore these signs. This puts other drivers and those working on the project at risk.
