With warmer weather and summer break, more people will be going on road trips and vacations. Many of these travelers will take a turnpike to get to their destinations faster.
The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority reminds us to stay alert, avoid distractions and drive carefully, especially in road work zones.
There have already been a number of accidents and casualties in the state this year that could have been prevented, and OTA is encouraging everyone to pay attention while driving. Your life and the lives of others are counting on you to buckle up, stay focused and not text and drive.
