Report: Missouri struggling to enforce texting-while-driving ban

Many dangerous car accidents that take place on the roads throughout southern Illinois and Missouri are caused by distracted driving.

In an attempt to curb distracted driving and the injuries it causes, many states have restricted drivers' rights to use cellphones while driving.

In the aftermath of a fatal car accident, it is very difficult for the family members and loved ones of victims to ever feel that justice has been served.
