An annual roadmap of state safety laws released Wednesday ranks Missouri among the most dangerous states in the country. The assessment is issued annually and is based on the number of safety laws that have been enacted in each state. Missouri received a red light – or dangerous – ranking, coming in at third worst. Only four of the suggested laws targeted by the report have been enacted here. In order to improve, the authors of the roadmap report say Missouri needs to enact tougher restrictions on teen drivers, texting restrictions for all drivers, stronger booster seat laws, and a primary seatbelt offense, among others.
