Blueprint to Save Lives

The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety has recently revealed their new Blueprint to Save More Lives plan in their fight to reduce car fatalities to the eventual goal of zero roadway deaths.

Missouri holds a record of regularly declining car fatalities which has been a consistent trend since 2005, earning the state various awards such as the Northwest Region "Arrive Alive" Award. Director of Highway Safety for the Missouri Department of Transportation, Leanna Depue says the Coalition plans to spread their message over multiple different platforms.
