(December 17, 2008) - Residents can now avoid congested streets and interstates by tracking traffic accidents online at www.okc.gov.
The real-time traffic tracking system pinpoints the exact location accidents have occurred within the city limits and whether it involved an injury.
“By using this new online tool, citizens can determine the best routes of travel and areas to possibly avoid,” said City Manager Jim Couch.
To view the traffic tracker, log on to the City’s Web site, www.okc.gov, and click the traffic report icon in the upper right of the page or type www.okc.gov/traffic in your web browser.
The traffic tracking system was a joint project between Oklahoma City’s Information Technology and Police Department.
In addition to tracking accidents reported, visitors to www.okc.gov can now view video produced by City Channel 20 on-demand.
Also launched today is a new application that gives visitors to okc.gov the ability to view programs like the Mayor’s Magazine, From City Hall, City News, Police Forum and other programs on-demand. Viewers can also watch “How Do I?” a series of programs that explains how to use City services.
