Oklahoma Launches New Anti-Texting While Driving Awareness Campaign

By Car Accident Help on November 19, 2010 | Posted in: Auto Accident, Law & Information

Texting while driving is a serious problem nationwide, and Oklahoma officials are cracking down to prevent car crashes related to texting not only involving teens, but for motorists of all ages within the state. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, over a dozen Oklahoma City high school students and safety advocates helped the governor launch an awareness campaign highlighting the dangers of texting and driving. The governor stated that about 700 Oklahoma car accidents, 30 of which were fatal, have involved a motorist who was either sending or reading a text message. Parents of teens lost in Oklahoma auto accidents also came out to show support and spread awareness of the tragedies that can happen because of drivers texting while driving.

Driver inattention is one of the most common causes of car crashes in Oklahoma and across the country. Taking one’s eyes off the road for even a split second can cause an accident with irreparable damage and alter the lives of all motorists involved in a crash permanently. Serious injuries such as brain damage, broken bones, amputation, nerve damage, disfigurement, burns and death can all occur due to an Oklahoma car accident caused by texting while driving.
