We all share the responsibility to keep our roads safe. To save lives, we have to watch out for each other! Each year, about 750 pedestrians and 325 bicyclists, are hit by cars on Oklahoma roadways, leading to serious injuries and fatalities.
Watch for Me OK is a public awareness campaign from the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) and the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO). Watch for Me OK seeks to educate the public on the rules of the road and aims to keep our residents safe while traveling.
Watch for Me OK is increasing the overall visibility of pedestrian and bicyclist safety issues through public service messages and community engagement efforts such as special events and partnerships. The program also provides educational materials to area leaders such as government staff, pedestrian and bicycle advocates, city planners, law enforcement agencies, engineers, public health professionals, the media, influencers, elected officials, parents, and educators.
The goal of this campaign is to reduce the total number of pedestrian and bicycle crashes and fatalities in Central Oklahoma.
