Our experienced Kansas City Driving Under the Influence Injury Attorneys want to remind all motorists in Kansas and Missouri that you don't just have to be drunk to get a DUI. Driving Under the Influence also includes illegal drugs and any prescription or non-prescription medication that can alter or numb your senses.  We talk a lot about the dangers of drinking and driving but we absolutely don't want this to go unnoticed.  The problem is you probably don't think about how much a little tylenol or some other prescription med might make you a little out of it.

But the texting part is what makes this sad.  Drivers should know better.  Texting and driving has been illegal for all ages n the state of Kansas since January 1, 2011 and will soon be the same in Missouri.  Put that phone down now, please-- together we can help keep roads and highways in Kansas and Missouri safe.
