The Ponca City Police Department receives grant funding from the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office. This funding pays for overtime for extra patrol for traffic enforcement. The overall largest infraction is speeding drivers.
“Statistics prove if speed is reduced, collisions are reduced, too,” said Patrol Division Captain Randy Tyner. He follows up with “If we have fewer collisions, there are fewer injuries. Please slow down.”
Since Aug. 1, officers have contacted 677 drivers which have received warnings or citations in Ponca City for speeding. Of those, 51 drivers were written citations or warnings in school zones.
