Did you know that just one pint of blood can save up to three lives? When we hear about accidents, earthquakes and other disasters in the news, we don’t always think about the fact that each person who loses his or her life is someone’s son, daughter, mother, father, sister, brother or friend. But, each time someone dies in an accident or disaster, there’s someone else who is feeling profound sadness and loss.

DUI (driving under the influence) is no joke. And, what’s more important than your safety, and the safety of your loved ones? The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office recently released new crash statistics for 2013, and they are (and should be) sobering. Although the total number of crashes decreased by 1.8% in 2013, that’s a small amount, considering that the total number of crashes was 69,430.
