Failure to Maintain Truck Accident

The term “failure to maintain” can refer to a couple different infractions in Missouri. One involves a lack of insurance and the other is a matter of sloppy driving. Violating either provision could get a driver in trouble with the law, but they will probably have different impacts on a civil lawsuit.

Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility

Every driver in Missouri is required to have insurance. Missouri Statutes Section 303.025 says that that any owner of a motor vehicle required to be registered in the state must “maintain the financial responsibility which conforms to the requirements of the laws of this state.” In Statutes Section 303.020(10), Missouri defines financial responsibility as the ability to pay up to $25,000 per person for bodily injury, $50,000 per accident for bodily injury, and $10,000 per accident for property damage.

Most people maintain this financial responsibility by purchasing insurance, but there are some other options including the driver just certifying that he or she has enough money to pay the required amounts out of pocket if necessary. Out-of-state drivers that pass through the state must meet their own state’s requirements, and those are usually very similar to Missouri’s. Drivers must usually show proof of financial responsibility to a law enforcement officer if asked.

Failure to Maintain a Single Lane

Another law in Missouri, Statutes Section 304.015(5), requires that a vehicle “be driven as nearly as practicable entirely within a single lane and shall not be moved from such lane until the driver has first ascertained that such movement can be made with safety.” In other words, a driver needs to stay in her or her lane, and needs to be careful when shifting lanes. Breaking this rule is sometimes called a failure to maintain a single lane.

This seemingly obvious rule has actually been the source of a good bit of consternation in Missouri. As explained in the Missouri Law Review, there is some debate over whether a driver can be pulled over for crossing the “fog line,” which is the white line on the side of the road. The courts in Missouri seem concerned that officers are too often using a fog line violation to initiate an unnecessary traffic stop. Regardless of the criminal implications, a driver that causes and injury while swerving in and out of a lane should be held liable for damages that driver causes.
