The Muskogee Police Department is continuing its enhanced speed limit enforcement program in an effort to get drivers to slow down.
Lt. Todd Whitman said 308 citations were issued to motorists stopped for speeding violations in areas targeted for enhanced enforcement during February.
The program, which was launched in May, was initiated upon the request of city councilors. It is intended to raise motorists’ awareness of driver safety.
The areas designated for enhanced speed limit enforcement in March are:
• Through Friday: York Street between Harris Road and Peak Boulevard.
• March 10-14: Okmulgee Avenue between Main Street and Virgil Matthews Drive.
• March 17-21: Shawnee Bypass between U.S. 69 and Oklahoma 165.
• March 24-28: Chandler Road between “R” Street and Oklahoma 165.
