TULSA -- The Tulsa Police Department is stepping up efforts to stop speeders on several Green Country highways.
Throughout March, TPD will focus on the the Broken Arrow Expressway as well as US 75.
The department says officers will not issue warnings while enforcing strict speeding violations. The effort is to lower the number of wrecks on the two highways, says the department.
The speeding tickets will cost anywhere between $150 to $500 and/or up to 10 days in jail, according to a press release.
