    Yes i agree with Male they do need to do more speeding work in these crash areas so were do they work I drive all over Bryan County everyday for my job and the only place i every see them at is in the city limits of Durant. Doesn't Durant Police Department have enough Officer without the help of the OHP. I beleave that the OHP should be on the Highway since thats what there name stands for.

    Not only do the police need to patrol for speeding vehicles, they need to patrol for drunks!! Rona was killed at 3:00 in the afternoon by a drunk driver. It is very sad what the world is coming to.

    We travel Hwy 70 multiple times per day. It has truck traffic, Silo school traffic, and busy intersections, not to mention the seasonal lake traffic and commuters in the morning and afternoon. I see troopers almost everyday but the traffic count seems to increase daily as well. You have to be stay alert.

    sounds like to me the Oklahoma Highway Patrol needs to start doing there jobs in working traffic in this area instead of wondering were they can start an investagation for troop z.
