When it comes to driving safety, there’s no room for mistakes on Oklahoma’s roads, highways and turnpikes.
Distracted driving and passenger safety are critical issues facing Oklahoma and should concern everyone. The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office reported that vehicle crashes were responsible for 628 deaths in 2016.
The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA) wants to see these numbers decline as many of these fatalities and collisions are preventable. Safe driving is the responsibility of anyone who operates a vehicle, and OTA wants drivers to take every precaution to give everyone on the road the best chance of reaching their destination safely.
