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 continued in 2019, adding an impaired driving component and more "share the road" information. For 2020, the creative from the previous years was remarketed to new audiences and saw groth in impressions, view rates, and impressions. To view the full FY20 campaign report, click here.
