Open Containers, Big Costs
Missouri highways are lined with signs warning against drinking and driving, but these are not exactly what they seem. The signs are part of a penalty the state pays for allowing passengers to drink. Also, how the St. Louis World's Fair of 1904 offered the best and worst of America.
For two decades, Missouri has been an outlier among states when it comes to allowing open alcohol containers in vehicles. KCUR’s Alex Smith reports the unusual policy has come at a cost that's far beyond the roadway risks.
