Tulsa, Oklahoma-Tulsa Police reported 34 car deaths so far in 2021. In 2020, there were a total of 45 car deaths.
“We have a lot of people driving recklessly and at high speeds,” said Captain Richard Mullenberg of the Tulsa Police Department.
Police reported that 13 vehicles were killed in the ministry’s Gilcrease division, 12 in the Mingo Valley division, and 7 in the Riverside division.
Captain Mullenberg said the worst crashes did not necessarily occur in the city’s high-speed, high-trafficking areas. He said the driver is speeding over 80 mph in the 25 mph zone.
“They are as fast as they can,” he said.
Traffic inspectors have found that reckless speed, a combination of inattentive driving and loose seatbelts, is causing a fatal collision. They say these include collisions with pedestrians and cyclists.
“It’s dangerous everywhere,” said Captain Murenberg.
