Missouri’s Traffic Volume has Almost Reached Pre-Pandemic Levels Again but Higher Incidents of Speeding and Driving Aggressively are Still a Problem

Missouri’s traffic volume has mostly rebounded to levels before the pandemic, but the increasing trend of speeding and driving aggressively from the earlier pandemic days are still around. Jon Nelson, with the Missouri Department of Transportation, says the trend has thrown him for a loop.

Last year, there were 987 traffic-related deaths in Missouri – forty-percent were related to speed. So far this year, we have had about 840 people die as a result of traffic crashes.
