Distracted Missouri cop drives straight into bicyclist

If you drive west of St. Louis for about four and a half hours, you will come to Peculiar, Missouri. The town of less than 5,000 recently made headlines when a bicyclist there was struck by a SUV driven by a local police officer. Fortunately, the bicyclist apparently sustained only minor injuries in the collision.

Research: Underpaid, fatigued truckers pose real road dangers

We begin to blink and yawn and lose interest in the book we’re reading, conversation we’re having or TV show we’re watching. The most natural thing to do is to head to bed and fall asleep. Unfortunately, many people are behind the wheel of a vehicle on the road when the feelings of drowsiness come upon them. The worst choice they make is to keep driving, experts say.

Research: Vehicle vibrations significantly increase driver drowsiness

Like every major American city, St. Louis is crisscrossed by interstates and other major roadways carrying every imaginable type of 18-wheelers, cars, pick-ups, SUVs and motorcycles.

We hope that all of the regular readers of our St. Louis personal injury blog had enjoyable, safe Fourth of July holidays. Unfortunately, holidays are often a time when some irresponsible members of society get drunk, cause motor vehicle wrecks that injure innocent motorists. In the very worst case scenarios, people die in those violent crashes.

Stay clear of a truck’s “no-zone” to avoid an accident

We have all done it before. You’re in a hurry, so you speed up to go around a barreling 18-wheeler. The other car in front has slowed down as they approach traffic. Now you’re stuck right next to the gigantic truck you were attempting to get away from. Without intention, you have found yourself in the truck driver’s blind spot. These blind spots are not places anyone wants to be. It’s an accident waiting to happen.

Motorcycle helmet laws in Missouri

Most states have cracked down on drivers and passengers wearing seat belts and staying off their phones. Traffic laws are intended to keep the roads safer and cut back on fatality rates. The states haven’t forgotten about motorcyclists. While Illinois is not on board, Missouri is one of the 19 states that have a universal helmet law.
