A speed limit of 85 MPH is strictly enforced.
Oklahoma towns that do not reside along the paths of these turnpikes have all
but died, either because of the bio-plague, drought, bandits, poverty or a
combination of the four. Towns that have direct access to the Turnpikes on the
other hand are faring better.
Corp farmlands along the Turnpikes are allowed direct access to the roads for a
monthly fee to the OTA.
The OTA patrols in groups of two, for a couple of reasons, the first and most
important being backup with patrols running 20 minutes apart on each side the
closest backup will be a maximum of 10 minutes away, however 10 minutes can seem
like an eternity. The other reason is to break the monotony. Oklahoma toll roads
are boring! even when they were originally built, they cut through farm land,
now that land is mostly uninhabited wasteland. There are 45 units on patrol at
any one time with each one patrolling their designated 20 mile stretch of
Each OTA unit is supplied with 2 FN-RALs, 2 Colt AMT 2000s, 2 shotguns, medium
armored jackets, and a patrol car.
The patrol car used is a Ford/Hyundai Heavy Cruiser with a top speed of
195mph(314kph) and medium armor (12 SP)
The personnel's combat training is equivalent to that of a well trained
security guard, each is tested for driving skill and combat effectiveness. Other
training includes skills that will help them "Protect and Serve" those
that travel the Turnpikes, including first aid to help in medical emergencies,
and basic tech for basic roadside assistance.
While on the turnpike, OTA units are supposed to stop for any vehicle sitting
on the side of the road and administer any help that is required. Anything that
can't be fixed on the spot will be called in and an OTA tow vehicle will remove
the broken vehicle form the road and take it to the nearest authorized OTA
repair facility, the tow is free, the repairs are not.
OTA Patrol Role:
- Combat Driving
- Handgun or Rifle (the other should be picked up)
- Human Perception
- Basic Tech
- Brawling or Martial Arts (Boxing, Judo or Wrestling)
- First Aid
OTA members have no authority outside of the turnpike system, as they are not
recognized as true "law enforcement" personnel, though they are
respected a little more than your standard "rent-a-cop"
