IIHS finds shortcomings in vehicle automatic safety systems

Consumers shopping for new vehicles in Missouri will discover that many new models offer crash avoidance systems. These are meant to prevent drifting out of lanes, maintain safe distances and apply brakes when a collision appears imminent. Although automakers might market these features with the term "autopilot," testing conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety detected problems that would require drivers to pay attention at all times.

When your spouse gets injured, you suffer, too

It's never easy to care for an injured spouse. Not only will the healthy one feel sadness and empathy for the injured spouse's suffering, but the healthy spouse will also be tasked with caregiving activities while tending to every aspect of family affairs. Not only that, but due to the injured spouse's situation, he or she won't be able to continue working and contributing to the family income.

How to avoid drowsy driving

According to a poll from the National Sleep Foundation, 60 percent of adults said that they had operated a motor vehicle while drowsy. Another 37 percent said that they had fallen asleep behind the wheel. Missouri drivers and others should know that driving after being awake for 18 hours is similar to driving with a blood alcohol content of .05 percent.
