If you’re driving in Oklahoma, leave your prepaid cards at home

If the Oklahoma Highway Patrol stops you, they can now swipe your prepaid card and take all your money on the spot.

The gizmo they’re using is called an ERAD or Electronic Recovery and Access to Data machine.

Is there a cause for worry here? Not really. According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. John Vincent,  “If you can prove that you have a legitimate reason to have that money, it will be given back to you.”
