According to a news report, a 38-year-old Oklahoma woman is facing multiple DUI and child endangerment charges.

Oklahoma City hit-and-run accident injures woman

On July 11, a 34-year-old woman was traveling on State Highway 66 in northwest Oklahoma City when she and another driver were involved in a collision.

Risk of car accidents remains high for teen drivers

Parents may feel powerless to fully protect their children from dangers on Oklahoma roads. The statistics behind the sizable premium hike when placing a teen on the family insurance policy paint a bleak picture. In 2010, car wrecks claimed the lives of nearly as many individuals between the ages of 15 and 24 than the combined total of the next two causes of unintentional injury. A number of changes have taken place to reduce the risk of teenage car accidents, but insurance discounts may offer parents a means of reducing risk further.

New stipulations decrease truck drivers' schedules

Truck drivers in Oklahoma might be concerned to hear that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration implemented a new set of rules that governs how many hours truck drivers are allowed to drive. This measure was taken in an effort to reduce the number of traffic fatalities involving buses and large trucks. According to the Department of Transportation, between 3,000 and 4,000 people in the United States each year die in crashes involving large buses and trucks. Thirteen percent of those crashes were found to be attributed to fatigued drivers.
