Maybe ODOT should reconsider the widening of 169 from 244 thru Owasso so the pile ups won't be so severe in the future. We all know this isn't the last accident that'll happen in that area of 169.

Hell they could make it eight lanes wide in each direction and all eight lanes would be blocked. Most of them poke-butts with phones in hand. The state ought to put those sign's back up that said slower traffic keep right. Then enforce it the way they do the speeding laws. This is the kind of stuff that causes road rage, which I would not be surprized if it is found to be the cause of this. My 0.02 worth.

Or if we had Cat Parks! They promised us hovercraft and Cat Parks. But did we get them?

They are planning on widening 169 from 244 to highway 20

Dont know what the status is on that though but something should be happening between now and the next 5 years. They plan on doing it though in 3 phases. They'll basically add 2 lanes in the middle of 169.
FYI those little rails that ODOT put in the middle of 169 was a federal requirment for having so many number of accidents.

Some states will issue you a ticket if you are impeding traffic and or have 5 or more cars behind you.
