resulting in 475 motorist assists, as well as investigating 199 collisions
(28 alcohol related), issuing 751 speed citations, 547 safety belt

does look like an overall reduction from 2010 whem authorities reported 10
traffic related deaths, and zero drownings.

"It was an exrtremely HOT holiday-weekend, and our Troopers stayed super
busy assisting the public, and keeping the roads, and waterways safe", said
Captain Chris West, spokesman for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
