More Cops. More Stops.

ARCHIVED PRESS RELEASE: Published 7-25-2012

morecopsmorestops.jpgThe Tulsa Police Department is teaming with law enforcement agencies across the state between July 27th and August 5th to crack down on traffic safety violations.

State and local law enforcement will be out in force to remind all drivers and passengers to never drink and drive, always buckle up, obey the speed limit, and eliminate all distractions in the vehicle while driving.  Nearly 500 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in Oklahoma highway crashes in 2010.  Sixty percent were NOT wearing their seatbelts.  33 percent of Oklahoma fatalities in motor vehicle traffic crashes involved an alcohol-impaired driver and 28 percent were speeding.

This special enforcement crackdown is part of the state's new More Cops. More Stops. campaign to help save more lives on Oklahoma's roadways.
