Will hi-tech monitoring of drivers reduce accidents?

Some insurance companies are taking advantage of modern technology to keep a closer eye on their customers' driving habits. Even though such business initiatives are voluntary right now, some complain that this technology still has too much of a Big Brother feel to it. On the other hand, many proponents say that drivers operate their cars safer when they know that their insurance companies are watching their driving via the customers' mobile devices.

KC suburb accused of hiding record in auto accident matter

The City of Raytown, a suburb of Kansas City, has been ordered to pay $42,000 to a family in connection with a violation of Missouri's Sunshine Law. The case is related to a fatal auto accident that claimed the life of an area woman who was almost 70.

Distracted driving laws not having intended effect?

A recent analysis that has been reported in major media outlets suggests that the efforts on the part of states to crack down on distracted driving with tough penalties aimed at those who choose to text and drive or use their cell phones while driving might not be making much of a dent in the bigger problem.

Missouri falls short with traffic safety laws

According to an annual report about the status of traffic safety measures among the states, our state is coming up as a little lax on careless driving habits, particularly with respect to teen drivers. The report first compiled what might be called a wish list of traffic laws that many states have adopted, which, in the opinion of the authors, serve to promote safety on the road and reduce injuries. The report then asked how many of these laws our state has actually adopted.

What is whiplash?

The term, "whiplash," may have a bad connotation in some circles. Some may even believe that it is not really an injury at all. They may believe that it is just a label that one puts on some aches and pains, perhaps, even just to increase one's chances at getting compensation in a lawsuit following an auto accident.

Even a small amount of alcohol can cause an auto accident

As is the case in the clear majority of other states, the legal limit in Missouri, is 0.08 percent blood alcohol content (BAC). This is a measure of how much alcohol is in one's system and, thus, how much one has had to drink over the last several hours. Kansas City residents should know by now that trying to drive with 0.08 or greater BAC is extremely dangerous behavior and can lead to a serious auto accident.
