Careless driving remains to be a serious issue across the state of Oklahoma and also throughout the United States. In 2015 alone, there were a total of 15,493 court convictions for Oklahoma drivers that failed to stop at stop signs. Failing to obey posted stop signs, traffic signals and other known rules of the road puts your safety, and the safety of those around you, at risk.
In Tulsa, two people were recently hospitalized after a negligent driver failed to obey basic traffic laws. Police say that on Monday, 7/25, a driver ran a stop sign at the intersection of West 23rd Street and South Maybelle and proceeded to T-bone another car.
The accident is still under investigation, but the driver that ran the stop sign was arrested. According to police, a person from each car was injured and taken to local hospitals. Their condition is unknown at this time.
When drivers fail to respect basic traffic safety laws, the outcome can be dangerous and even deadly. This accident could have been prevented if only the driver were to have safely stopped at the posted stop sign. In Oklahoma, failing to obey a stop sign is a serious traffic violation that can result in fines and points on your driver’s license. This kind of careless and reckless driver behavior jeopardizes not only your own safety but also the safety of other drivers on the road.
