CVSA schedules 2019 Brake Safety Week for September

Commercial motor vehicle operators in Oklahoma, especially drivers of big rigs, should know that the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has set a date for the 2019 Brake Safety Week.

Truckers should make sure that these components are free of leaks, are flexible and have been properly attached.

AAA: fatal teen driver crashes peak in summer

Every summer, teens increase their presence on the roads in Oklahoma, putting themselves and others at a higher risk for accidents. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety says that the 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day are the deadliest for teen drivers, raising their risk for a fatal crash by 15% on average. Through lack of experience and poor choices, teens themselves may be largely responsible for this trend.

Study: drivers use phones even though they know it's wrong

Most Oklahoma motorists who drive while distracted know that the practice is hazardous. This trend can be seen nationwide, according to the second yearly distracted driving study from Root Insurance. Nearly half of respondents called distracted driving their top concern on the road, and 99% pointed to phones as among the top three distractions. Nevertheless, respondents said they use their cellphones for an average of 13 minutes each day while on the road.

Car accidents: the most common causes

Car crashes in Oklahoma are all too frequently caused by human error. With rapid advances in technology, drivers are especially becoming more distracted on the road. Using the smartphone or a navigation system is not the only possible distraction, though. Even eating, drinking and talking with other occupants in the car will take one's attention from the road. The following are just a few other common causes of accidents.

Mobile workers prone to distracted driving, says report

The growing mobile workforce in Tulsa and across the country could be a significant contributor to the threat posed by distracted driving. When people consider distracted motorists, they often think of teens texting while driving. However, smartphones can be just as big a problem among connected mobile workers. According to a report by the vehicle management platform Motus, smartphone ownership among mobile workers is highly correlated with a growing accident rate. While 55 percent of these workers owned smartphones in 2015, 77 percent had such devices in 2017. During the same period, car accident figures also increased 12.3 percent, from 5.7 million to 6.4 million.
