TULSA - Tulsa police are targeting speeding drivers.
A new enforcement begins Monday on the Broken Arrow Expressway and Tulsa police expect to hand out tickets right and left.
The TPD's Riverside Traffic Unit is focusing on speed enforcement along Highway 51 and city surface streets all week.
Police say they are monitoring for speed and hazardous moving violations.
Tickets start at $150 and no warnings will be issued.
The week-long enforcement is due to numerous traffic crashes in recent weeks. Police say this is an ongoing effort to make sure officers are more visible in specific areas.
Enforcement stretches from Sheridan west into the downtown area. It also includes side streets.
Motorists are encouraged to use caution and pay attention to speed limits.
