The Ponca City Police Department received a grant from the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office to combat aggressive driving. The goal is to reduce crashes and injuries. In effort of attaining this goal they kicked off the Drive Sober or get Pulled Over campaign last Friday. This is a nationwide campaign that runs through Sept. 1.

"Our department always has an aggressive stance against drunk or drugged driving, during this campaign we will have extra officers on the street," Earl Watkins, Ponca City Patrol Captain said.
