The challenge is simple: when you get into any vehicle, buckle up your safety belt. If you are a driver, put the cellphone down. Turn it off if you have to. No texting and no talking unless hands free.


In 2016, 946 people were killed in Missouri traffic crashes – 689 were vehicle drivers and passengers, with 63% 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 17 percent in 2015. 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.
