Mo. Lawmakers Consider New Traffic Laws

Jefferson City, Mo. – Some Missouri lawmakers want to make some driving courtesies the law of the land.

The Senate Transportation Committee considered the proposals Monday. They would limit speeds on some country roads to 45 miles an hour; ban trucks from using the far left lane on city highways; and require drivers to turn lights on when using windshield wipers.

The committee didn't vote on any of the proposals.
