TULSA — The Tulsa Police Department says it is cracking down on speeding and hazardous moving violations in active school zones throughout May.

Tulsa police officers and motorcycle officers will be randomly monitoring school zones within Tulsa during the month. A citation issued for speeding in a school zone requires a court appearance with a fine of $500 and/or up to 30 days in jail. No warnings will be issued, police said.

Schools in the area are preparing to end their school year and will begin summer break soon. Police say children playing in these areas are more likely to be distracted and not paying full attention to vehicles.

Drivers are urged to remain alert, refrain from using electronic devices and to heed warning signs.
