Missouri readers know that cell phones are part of daily life. Most people have them and use them constantly throughout the day -- sometimes even while they are driving, unfortunately. Distracted driving is a serious safety concern, and it is one of the leading causes for motor vehicle accidents. Despite the fact that most people are aware of the danger associated with using their phones and driving, many still choose to do so.
It can all start with a crash. The Missouri driver is driving along the road and suddenly an accident has occurred. To others, this is just one of the over six million motor vehicle accidents that occur each year in America. Yet, to those involved, it is "the" accident.
Life often changes without warning. One moment, the Missouri resident is working hard and the next minute, he takes his last breath. Sometimes, these sudden changes are brought on by something related to the individual and his personal well-being; other times, another individual is at fault. All too often, motor vehicle accidents are to blame.
Every day, Missouri residents get in their cars and drive to work, school, the store and various other locations. Prior to these excursions, the individual usually does a quick to check to make sure that there is enough gas in the tank and that everything appears to be safe. The seat belt is fastened and the journey begins. Even though this preparation only takes a moment, it is necessary in order to protect the individual in case of motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, these safeguards are not always enough.
