Welcome to the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety

DON’T LET BAD DECISIONS DEFINE YOU

Don’t listen to your Bad Decisions this Super Bowl Sunday. Wise up – never drink and drive. Call a friend, Uber or Lyft for a safe and sober ride home from your Super Bowl Party. Your life and the lives of others depends on it. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

Buckle Up Phone Down

Change Your Speed. Change The Ending

According to NHTSA, a crash on a road with a speed limit of 65 mph or greater is more than twice as likely to result in a fatality than a crash on a road with a speed limit of 45 or 50 mph and nearly five times as likely as a crash on a road with a speed limit of 40 mph or below.
