Even though Lincoln County is relatively safe for the more common, 2-vehicle traffic accidents, it ranks in the top 20% for motorcycle accidents in the entire state.

The population of Troy, Missouri is growing at remarkable rates, increasing 57% from 6,700 to 10,540 in just one decade. This rapid growth in population means more traffic on the roads which means a higher likelihood for traffic accidents. US Highway 61 and Missouri Highway 47 are the major roadways in Troy and the size of these highways are quickly becoming insufficient to handle such growth in traffic volume.
