Study: Police reports don't capture enough data
Check out this article about a recent study by the National Safety Council concerning police reports. The study found that police reports in all states fail to capture enough data concerning the causes of car accidents. Many states' police reports, for example, don't include fields to adequately capture distracted, drowsy, and drugged driving. The findings are especially concerning given that traffic fatalities are rising dramatically nationwide.

Texting and driving ban proposed in Missouri
Check out this article about two bills currently before Missouri lawmakers that would crack down on distracted driving in the state. One bill would ban texting and driving, while the other bill would ban using a hand-held device while driving. Missouri is one of just six states that currently doesn't have a total texting and driving ban in place. The bills have received a mixed reaction from lawmakers, with some saying they are unlikely to support a total ban on hand-held devices while driving, but would be open to a texting and driving law.
