The tragic consequences of lo-tech distractions while driving

Cutting-edge technology, specifically cell phones and other mobile devices are usually the culprit in accidents caused by distracted driving. The ability to concentrate on the road and other drivers can become seriously impaired due to various forms of communications. Texting, tweeting, Facebooking and live video broadcasts while driving can lead to serious injuries and death.

Driven to distraction -- are your emotions driving the car?

Distracted driving is a serious problem in the U.S. In due response to rising numbers of distracted driving accidents, technology is being developed to prevent people from texting and driving, and in 2015 Oklahoma banned texting while driving for all drivers.


Train safety is an important concern for many communities. Changes to railroad crossing safety are coming to a neighboring community south of Oklahoma City. The safety modifications for the quiet zone to go into effect are in place, and the quiet zones are scheduled to begin at any time. The safety modifications are also expected to make the crossings safer, such as the yellow safety medians which will prevent drivers from splitting the gates.
