Traffic Safety Forum

Each year, people from around the state who have an interest in traffic safety gather to discuss projects, get ideas for ways to improve safety in their area, and meet with others in their field.

This year, the Traffic Safety Forum will be held at the newly renovated Sheraton Downtown Hotel in Oklahoma City.

For the first time, we are planning to have various exhibitors at this event. Exhibitors who are planning to attend include Smart Start, Laser Technologies, FirstNet, SafeKids, AAA Oklahoma, ABATE of Oklahoma, and others.
