Will stricter texting and driving laws make roads safer?

The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) released a study that reveals nine states enacting stricter texting while driving laws. While individual legislation is unique to each state, the overall goal is to strengthen enforcement and increase penalties and fines while emphasizing education and awareness.

Making roads safer: There’s an app for that

During the annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC), Apple is front and center. Devotees wait to hear the latest and greatest when it comes to new products, updates and software features. This past Monday, Apple revealed that when it comes to saving lives, they now have an app for that.

When are the most dangerous days for teen drivers?

Like most parents of teenagers everywhere, you are probably at least somewhat nervous at the thought of your teen behind the wheel. No matter how prepared your son or daughter feels to drive the streets of Oklahoma City, teenage drivers can only control how careful they are personally. Your teenager has no influence when it comes to another driver's negligence. As the number of alcohol-impaired drivers on the road increases, so too do the odds of your teen getting into a car accident that could prove devastating or even fatal.

New device may lower accident numbers, but in the meantime...

You've probably seen it more than a time or two on Oklahoma highways: a driver looking down at a hand-held device and typing with thumbs behind the wheel in moving traffic. Hopefully, you avoid such behavior while driving and do your best to remain alert and cautious of any distracted driver who may be in your vicinity. Just because you recognize the signs of distracted driving, however, doesn't mean you'll be able to avoid a collision.

Look, up in the sky!

Once associated with spying and various military applications, drones today have a multitude of civilian applications that range from taking panoramic pictures to delivering packages.

To the Google-mobile!

Since its inception in 1998, Google’s has gained dominance, if not supremacy in providing internet-related services and products. The name itself is a synonym for online searches, akin to the genericized use of Jell-O and Kleenex as the go-to term for similar products, regardless of their brand names.

What if the at-fault driver who hit you doesn't have enough insurance?

If you've ever driven on Turner Turnpike or some other heavily traveled stretch of Oklahoma road, you understand what it's like to have cars zipping past you at high rates of speed. Such areas are often prone to serious accidents, and many times driver negligence plays a leading role. This happens despite the fact that all motorists have an obligation to remain alert and adhere to all traffic regulations to keep themselves and others as safe as possible.
