Secure Your Load

"Secure Your Load" is a national campaign to remind and encourage drivers to make sure whatever they're hauling is secure in their vehicle.

Each year, debris and trash on the roads cause crashes across the state. The OHSO has partnered with "Keep Oklahoma Beautiful" and other state agencies to remind people to secure their load - not only to keep Oklahoma beautiful, but to keep Oklahoma roads safer!
