Motorcycle Safety Campaign
During the Summer of 2018, the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office and OkieMoto launched the "Road Science" public safety campaign. This campaign focused on educating vehicle drivers to several dangers that motorcycle riders face that the drivers may not think about. With a scientific approach, including physics equations and graphics, the campaign aimed to inform drivers of these dangers, and encourage motorcycle riders to be extra vigilant when riding.
The "Road Science" campaign will continue with new elements in May 2019.
