Have you ever driven on the deadliest road in Oklahoma? 

I live in North Texas and have many good friends in the Sooner State, so I’m up there quite a bit. There’s also the fact that Oklahoma City has a lot of good concerts and is an easy drive from Wichita Falls. So yeah, I’ve driven on many of the roads up there.

The thing about Oklahoma City is that it used to be way easier to get around than some of the biggest cities here in the Lone Star State. However, the last couple of times I’ve been there, traffic and construction have made getting from A to B a bit tougher. I guess that’s just life in the big city. 

Anyway, I like to think that I’m a defensive driver. But I could always be better. I’m a firm believer that there is no such thing as being too safe.

That said, even the most defensive drivers can fall victim to others’ bad driving habits, not to mention the fact that some roads are just more dangerous than others for various reasons. So, any time I come across a study detailing the most dangerous roads in an area I frequent, I’m interested. 

If that’s you and you live in or plan to travel to Oklahoma City, know that Northeast 23rd Street from North Highland Drive to North Midwest Boulevard from Oklahoma City to Midwest City is the most dangerous stretch of road in all of Oklahoma.
