MoDOT Urges People to Avoid Putting Up Signs and Displays Along State Roadsides

MoDOT Urges People to Avoid Putting Up
Signs and Displays Along State Roadsides
MoDOT's fall mowing operation is under way, and people are encouraged NOT to put up political, yard sale, real estate and other signs and items on public roadsides.
The signs jeopardize the safety of drivers and make it more difficult and time-consuming for workers to mow.
It also is illegal to post signs, put up displays, park vehicles and place other objects on the public right-of-way.
* It is unsafe for people to be on foot close to traffic putting up a sign or display.
* Signs and other items can block a driver's vision along a highway or on side roads and driveways where they approach a highway.
* If a car runs off the road in an emergency and hits an obstacle, the driver may be hurt and vehicle damaged.
Removing Signs
It is against state law to place advertising signs or display materials on state highways. (Chapter 227.220 of Revised Statutes of Missouri)
Signs or displays may be removed by MoDOT workers. Items will be held at the nearest MoDOT maintenance facility for 30 days and then may be discarded.

Missouri man charged with sex trafficking in Mass. girl's disappearance

Federal prosecutors on Friday charged a Missouri man with sex trafficking in the disappearance of a 17-year-old developmentally disabled girl who went missing Monday after leaving a library with the man in Medfield, Mass., and then turned up Thursday morning in Coventry.

Stephen Ardrey, of Springfield, Missouri, was charged with sex trafficking of a child and transportation of a minor with intent to engage in sexual activity.

Ardrey, who is facing 10 years to life for both charges, was ordered held without bail by federal magistrate Patricia A. Sullivan. Ardrey, as is custom in federal cases, entered no plea at this time.

Brittany Thompson walked out of the Medfield Public Library with Ardrey on Monday afternoon. Police said it appeared she had met him on line. Video released by police at the time shows a man now identified as Ardrey entering the library and then a moment later turning to leave as the girl follows him out the door.

Her parents reported her missing after her mother went to the library around 5 p.m. to pick Brittany up.

Media reports of her disappearance generated many leads which led police first to Boston and then to southern states, said Medfield Police Chief Robert Meaney on Thursday, hours after a passerby in Coventry saw Ardrey and the teenager walking down a street in Coventry.

Meaney said the person who alerted Coventry police said something about the pair looked awry.

Ardrey put up no resistance and he initially faced no charges. Homeland security agents combed the Motel 8 room in West Greenwich, R.I., where it's believed 17-year-old Brittany Thompson was staying.

MSHP News Release - DWI Enforcement Projects Scheduled For Troop A

Captain Robert L. Powell, commanding officer of Troop A, Lee’s Summit, announces during the remainder of September 2013, troopers will be conducting DWI saturation enforcement programs in Troop A that will include the entire 13-county area of West Central Missouri. Troopers assigned to the saturations will concentrate their efforts on highways which have been found to have a higher number of alcohol-related crashes and enforcement contacts.

In addition, troopers will be conducting sobriety checkpoints in Clay and Ray counties. At the checkpoints, drivers will be stopped at a static location. Upon contact with the officers, drivers will be asked to produce their driver’s license and proof of insurance. Normally, the wait at a checkpoint is less than five minutes. Unless officers suspect drinking or other violations, most drivers will not be asked to exit their vehicles.

The sobering fact is that impaired driving contributes to 28 percent of all Missouri fatal traffic crashes.  In 2012, 229 people were killed and 3,869 injured in crashes involving an impaired driver. That’s why the Missouri State Highway Patrol will join other Missouri law enforcement agencies to crack down on drunk driving throughout the month of September. 

The Patrol encourages motorists and watercraft operators to protect themselves by making sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint and everyone in the vessel is wearing an approved life jacket. Click It 4 Life and Wear It!!!

Program on Missouri State Penitentiary

Kander Announces Program on Missouri State Penitentiary

Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Jason Kander today announced a program documenting life behind bars at the now-closed Missouri State Penitentiary. Hosted by the Missouri State Archives, a division of Kander’s office, historian and author Mark Schreiber will speak about his new book, Shanks to Shakers: Reflections of the Missouri State Penitentiary.

On Thursday, September 19, 2013, at 7 p.m., the public is invited to enjoy an evening with Schreiber as he shares highlights from his book and stories from his years of work at Missouri’s most notable penitentiary.
Schreiber began his 42-year career in criminal justice in 1968 in Jefferson City as an employee with the Missouri State Penitentiary. Although professional opportunities took him away from the facility, he eventually returned to serve as the last deputy warden before it closed in 2004. Schreiber collected many stories and artifacts from the prison Time magazine once called “the bloodiest 47 acres in America.”
Shanks to Shakers examines rare historical artifacts associated with life behind the penitentiary’s walls, including photographs, postcards, books, prison-made weapons, paintings, woodcarvings and even salt and pepper shakers once sold in the prison gift shop.

The Missouri State Archives is the official repository for state documents of permanent historic value, and is located at 600 West Main Street in Jefferson City. All programs at the Archives are free of charge and open to the public, with seating available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
For more information on this and other programming at the Archives, contact Emily Luker at (573) 526-5296 or

October Is Crime Prevention Month!

The Missouri State Highway Patrol joins the National Crime Prevention Council in observing October 2013 as National Crime Prevention Month. It is always smart to keep safety in mind, no matter where you are. Missourians can help decrease crime with these simple habits: Anticipate potential crime situations; recognize when there is a problem; and, take action to remove or reduce the risk of a crime occurring. The Patrol urges residents and visitors to be alert and think safety!

Identity Theft:

Once you realize you’ve become a victim of identity theft:

* Notify the credit bureaus, your creditors, your bank, and law enforcement.

* Notify the local postal inspector if you suspect an identity thief has filed a change of address with the post office or has used the mail to commit credit or bank fraud.

* In dealing with the authorities and financial institutions, keep a log of all conversations, including dates, times, names, and phone numbers. Note the time spent and any expenses incurred. Confirm conversations in writing. Send correspondence by certified mail (return receipt requested). Keep copies of all letters and documents.

* If someone is using your driver’s license number from your stolen checks, you may need to contact the Missouri Department of Revenue’s Fraud Unit.

* If you have a passport, notify the passport office in writing to be on the lookout for anyone ordering a new passport fraudulently.

For more detailed information, the Patrol has included a brochure on identity theft on its Web site: (Select “brochures” under the “publications” heading.)

* Make sure you have good locks on all exterior doors--at least dead-bolt locks with a minimum of one-inch throw.

* Make sure your windows have strong locks.

* Use the locks you have.

* Secure sliding glass doors with commercially available bars or locks, or, put a wooden dowel or broom handle in the door track.

* Porches, entrances, and outside areas should be well lighted.

* Trim any bushes or trees that hide doors or windows. Maintain your yard and keep ladders and tools inside when they are not in use.

* Don’t hide a house key under the doormat or in a flowerpot. That’s the first place a burglar will look! Give a key to a trusted neighbor instead.

*Consider an alarm system.

In Missouri, a burglary occurred every 12.4 minutes in 2012. (Statistic from Missouri State Highway Crime In Missouri report.)


* Always lock your car and take the keys, even if you plan to return in a short time. One motor vehicle theft occurred every 32.3 minutes. (Statistic from Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime In Missouri report.)

* Keep your car in good running condition to avoid breakdowns.

* If your car breaks down, raise the hood or tie a white cloth to the street side door handle. Stay in your locked car. Call *55 on your cellular telephone to reach the nearest Missouri State Highway Patrol headquarters and ask for assistance. If you don’t have a cell phone with you, wait in your car. If someone stops and offers assistance, ask them to make the call for you.

* NEVER pick up hitchhikers.

* Park in well-lighted areas that will remain lighted until you return to your car. Be particularly alert when using enclosed parking garages.


* Teach your children how to use the telephone properly in an emergency situation.

*Make sure your children know their name, address, phone number, and your work number.

* Teach your children to walk and play with friends, not alone.

* Tell your children to refuse rides or gifts from someone they don’t know well.

*Teach your children to tell a trusted adult immediately if anyone, even a teacher or close relative, touches them in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable.

* Remind your children to leave the door locked if they are home alone. They shouldn’t answer the door if you’re not there.

* Teach your children never to tell anyone they are home alone, especially over the phone.

Parents are encouraged to listen to their children’s worries and problems. Talk to them. Make sure you know where your children are going, who they will be with, and when they will return. Know their friends’ names and phone numbers.

There are other ways to prevent crime. Education through your schools and Neighborhood Watch groups are good first steps. The Missouri State Highway Patrol has public information and education officers assigned to each troop headquarters and the Division of Drug and Crime Control. These troopers are available to present a variety of programs to civic groups, church groups, schools, and companies. Contact the nearest Patrol troop headquarters if you would like a safety or related program presented to your group.

Remember: Anticipate ... Recognize ... Take action.
