According to a spokesperson for the Missouri Department of Transportation this year’s Fourth of July holiday is expected to break travel records, after the pandemic kept much of the nation inside for last year’s Independence Day celebrations.

During last year’s Fourth of July counting period there were 1,356 traffic crashes resulting in 15 deaths on Missouri roadways.
