What's the difference between lighting a city road or a small dangerous area of road? Someone living in that area for more than 15 years, with that experience on a particular road, just doesn't miss a turn, one that he was so familiar with. Since the road is limited by terrain, the best and probably only solution would be to illuminate the areas where there has been a high concentration of fatalities. I'm sure those areas could be counted on one hand but have taken many lives.
i agree with you 100% but osage county sucks,they dont care about public safty, this area where this accident took place is in the middle of nowhere, we dont even have cable tv because it is way in the woods

Actually those areas could not be counted on one hand. And it's not just this curves it's the potholes also. Another thing that plays into factor is the wildlife. I have had a fox run straight into my tire once. When something like that happens some people dodge them and run off the road. Or some people don't dodge them and the animal runs into them and they lose control. I know someone that has hit cows on these roads at night. You never know what to expect on these roads.

These are apparently rual roadways... probably county roads??? are they... if so that would account for the cows in the roadway... potholes ... and roadways that you say are dangerous... I would contact the county and see if something couldn't be done from that end... but riders and cars beware...

Buffalo was something like the 4th in that one particular area, according to a resident keeping count. If we could see the future, would've paid the approximately $15 per month for a light pole myself rather than having to hear the way he died. Fatalities have names, lives, families, and friends, and should not be forgotten. Instead of buying flowers for the guard rail, like every year when I visit, think I will buy a reflector instead...

You forget, this is Osage county, the largest county in Oklahoma. They get the same amount of funding as other counties yet have more roads to cover.

You sure don't see stimulus in action.... Stimulus alloted for road repairs should've been divided by the mileage of roads, not based on populus or county.

It is very hard to read comments that are very harsh about my father. May 25, 2009 was the day that my father was taken from this earth. to the people who had something shitty to say about my father have you ever had to stand on the road and see your father laying there dead and then to have the paramedic tell you that your father is dead??? that is something no one should ever have to see and apparently none of you people have because if you did you would not have had something negative to say... My father was the passenger on the bike and had nothing in his system!!!!!!!!!!alcohol,drugs exc.....) and I just so happen to have the report just saying. so no one should judge until they know the whole story!!! Also I would like if whomever have something negative to say about my father address your comments to me because I have a few words for you myself.. I still miss you and love you daddy always and forever!! love your daughter Ashley!! by the way your daughters are growing up fast and your only son misses you more and more everyday!! RIP daddy and please disregard these comments that these people with know heart have said! you were the best daddy and taken to soon :(
