Stats & Facts
Impaired driving contributes to nearly 30 percent of all Missouri traffic fatalities.
In 2012, 217 people were killed and 815 seriously injured in crashes involving an 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.
