What to do if you witness an accident

Unfortunately, car accidents are a big contributor to road closures, in Oklahoma and every other state. Here’s what to do if you witness an accident:
  • Remain calm
  • If you can, pull over to a safe spot and call 911
  • If safe to do so, offer aid to any victims
If you’re driving on a roadway where a collision has occurred, remember to follow
Oklahoma's move-over laws
and yield to emergency vehicles, as well as slow down. Driving cautiously around accident sites and construction can avoid further danger and collisions. 
Careless driving should be avoided at all costs. Remember, traffic tickets and car accidents can cost you in more ways than one—including hiking up your car insurance rates!

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
