“Hazardous moving violation operations are one tool the Missouri State Highway Patrol uses to vigorously enforce laws designed to reduce crashes,” said Captain Bruce D. Fiske. “Please be careful behind the wheel, obey all traffic laws, and be a courteous driver.”

The only 100 percent survivable traffic crash is the one that never happens. Make sure everyone
in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Every day as we travel on
Missouri’s roadways, we trust that every driver on the road is going to obey the speed limit, pay
attention, and drive sober. “Don’t Violate The Trust.”
