TULSA - State troopers say they have met their goal for two years in a row, with no collisions reported in the Tulsa metro area during the time of their New Year's crackdown.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol launched their holiday enforcement operation at 7 p.m. on New Year's Eve and worked until 3 a.m. New Year's Day.
The 15 troopers assigned to the operation recorded:
"This was a combined operation and everyone worked hard to ensure that, at the end of the night, citizens went home safely to be with family & loved ones, " Brown said.
