Stats & Facts
Impaired driving contributes to nearly 30 percent of all Missouri traffic fatalities.
In 2013, 198 people were killed and 583 seriously injured in crashes involving a substance-impaired driver.
Missouri has a Zero Tolerance Law. If you are under 21, your license will be suspended if you’re caught driving with even a trace of alcohol in your system.
If you cause a fatal crash while intoxicated, you can be charged with involuntary manslaughter, a felony resulting in up to seven years of jail time, a $5,000 fine or both.
Your license can be suspended for 90 days on your first conviction. You could be fined up to $500 and spend up to 6 months in jail.
A second conviction results in a yearlong revocation of your license. You could be fined up to $1,000 and spend up to one year in jail.
Any person guilty of a second or subsequent intoxication-related traffic offense will be required to install an ignition interlock device on their car before reinstating driving privileges.
