Credit File / KBIA

The Missouri Senate passed a bill Thursday that would impose tougher penalties on drivers who run stop signs, if they cause crashes resulting in injury or death.

The legislation would increase fines and require the suspension of driver's licenses in certain cases of failing to yield the right of way. The bill would set a minimum fine of $500 and raise the maximum to $1,000 instead of the current $200 for violations resulting in injuries. For serious injuries, there would be a new minimum fine of $1,000, and the maximum would rise to $3,000 from the current $500.
