Many of the cars and trucks offered for sale in Missouri contain sophisticated electronic systems that can actually take over the driving duties in emergency situations and either brake sharply to avoid a collision or steer safely around obstructions in the roadway. Auto manufacturers have pledged to make automatic braking systems standard equipment on virtually all passenger vehicles sold in the United States by 2022, and road safety experts believe that this type of technology could be of particular use to older drivers.

There were 35,092 fatalities in 2015.
