The vision of the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO) is to establish and maintain safe roadways for everyone.
The majority of motor vehicle fatalities in Oklahoma are the result of driver behavior. Impaired driving, speeding, distracted driving and failure to wear a seat belt are behaviors that can be changed through awareness, education and strict enforcement of traffic safety laws.
The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office coordinates a statewide behavioral highway safety program by making federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) available to state and local entities. These dollars fund programs that help these groups enforce traffic laws, educate the public in traffic safety, and provide varied and effective means of reducing fatalities, injuries and economic losses from crashes.
