Safety first! Click It or Ticket campaign starts

Ponca City Now - May 26, 2016 3:00 pm

Memorial Day is the kick off to the summer, and Ponca City Police officers will be out in full force enforcing traffic safety.

May 23 to June 5 is the enforcement period for the Nationwide “Click It or Ticket Campaign.”

The Ponca City Police Department participates in the campaign, which emphasizes safe speeds, everyone seat belted properly and sober driving.

Funding received through a competitive grant process through the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office provides extra officers out patrolling in peak travel times.

“Memorial Day Weekend is a peak travel time,” said Patrol Division Captain Earl Watkins. “We will be out in force and likely be doing a safety check point, too.”
