Missouri Highway Patrol Continues Distracted Driving Message
The anti-texting while driving campaign is intended to encourage Missouri’s motorists to put down their phones and prevent traffic crashes from the dangerous distraction of texting while driving.
“Inattention is a leading cause of traffic crashes,” said Colonel Replogle. “If you’re focused on sending a text message, then you aren’t paying attention to your driving. Cell phone usage — particularly texting while driving can lead to tragic consequences. These consequences are easily preventable if drivers would simply put down their phones and focus on the road.”
Col. Replogle added that the campaign complements Missouri’s current anti-texting law, which prohibits use of texting devices for drivers 21 years of age and younger. He called on all Missouri drivers to honor the letter and the spirit of the law–regardless of age–and stop texting while driving to help make Missouri’s highways safer for all motorists. Missouri is one of 38 states in the nation to enact some type of anti-texting legislation.
In 2012, cell phone usage while driving contributed to more than 1,423 traffic crashes in Missouri. Those crashes can be broken down into 965 property damage only, 445 injury, and 13 fatal crashes involving cell phone use while driving. Additionally, in this same time period, there were 262 crashes where texting while driving was cited as a contributing cause, and those crashes can be broken down into 178 property damage only, 82 injury and two fatal.
