Northwest Missouri State University


Texting and Driving

Please help us reduce distracted driving on our campus! 

Each day there are thousands of students, guest, faculty and staff members traveling in vehicles and on foot around our campus.  With the high volume of traffic on our campus, the probability of accidents, injuries, and even fatalities as a result of texting while driving poses a very real threat to safety.  Please help maintain our safe campus by committing to text safe and to not text while driving a vehicle.           

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Missouri revised statue 304.820 prohibits text messaging while operating a motor vehicle.  Approximately 1.3 million accidents last year were caused by texting and driving.  For more information please reference Missouri revised statue 304.820 and the Arrive Alive website at savemolives.com.
