Check back often as we increase our understanding of the most dangerous roads in Oklahoma City - information that can keep you and your family safe on the road.
Certain stretches of road can be dangerous for any number of reasons; sharp curves, inadequate lighting at night and high commercial vehicle use (lots of trucks) are only the beginning. McIntyre Law represents those who have been injured in accidents every day. However, through collecting and analyzing accident data, we hope to identify high-risk locations in order to prevent future accidents.
The following is a list of the most highly trafficked roads in Oklahoma City where we see some of the most severe accidents happening:
Many commercial vehicles heading from cities in the Midwest to the Southwest end up on the Kilpatrick Turnpike in northwest Oklahoma City as they transition from I-44 to I-40. Local residents who frequently use this stretch of highway should use caution and learn to drive defensively around tractor trailors.
Oklahoma State Highway 9 is one of the greater Oklahoma City area's most dangerous roads. Running through Cleveland County to the south of the city, the highway transitions from mostly rural terrain to a mix of business and residential traffic in Norman.
Entering or exiting the city from the northwest requires travel on the N.W. Expressway, or State Highway 3. Congestion and heavy traffic can contribute to accidents as the highway transitions from rural four-lane to a more dense environment within Oklahoma City.
Cutting through the heart of Oklahoma City, traffic accidents are all too common on I-40. Interstate speeds and the high number of exits make merger related traffic accidents on Interstate 40 both common and serious. Drivers should use care when traveling on this road, especially between the I-35 and I-44 interchanges.
Our maps use data from the City of Oklahoma City on traffic accident severity and location. While the city primarily uses this information to understand how traffic flow is affected in real time, our goal is to identify patterns in accident location and severity over time. Knowing where Oklahoma City's traffic accidents happen the most can help keep you safe while on the road.
