Safety is a two-way street
The long lock-down is over. Missouri is once again open for business. That, and beautiful summer weather, have more Missourians taking to the roadways. Whether you’re driving, walking or biking, keep your head up and be alert – safety is a two-way street.

Pedestrian safety is the focus of a week-long campaign that starts June 21. In 2019, 110 pedestrians were killed in Missouri and more than 300 were seriously injured. The top contributing factors to these tragedies were failure to yield, alcohol or drug impairment and distraction/inattention. Speed also plays a critical role in preventing pedestrian fatalities, especially in urban areas.

Cyclists and pedestrians are urged to make safe choices, and drivers need to be stay alert. Watch out for each other to ensure everyone using the road gets home safely. Drivers who slow down, buckle up and put down their phone help make the state’s transportation system safer for everyone. Read more.
