Local Law Enforcement Cooperate for Safety Corridors THIS NEWS ITEM EXPIRED 9/1/2012 AND IS NOT LONGER ACTIVE!
Highway safety and construction officials, along with law enforcement officers, have announced the first of three highway safety corridor projects across the state.
The corridors were identified by the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation as high-crash areas, based on the study of crash data from the past five years. The Pottawatomie County target area includes portions of I-40 and highways 102, 18 and 177.
Participating agencies include the Shawnee and Tecumseh police departments, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, as well as the OHSO and the ODOT.
Law enforcement officers will focus on impaired driving, speeding, seat belt and child car seat violations and other traffic safety issues in the corridor areas.
Other corridors are located in Payne County and Cherokee County. Kickoff events at those sites will take place at a later date.
Our goal is to save lives by focusing our efforts on these high-risk areas, said Garry Thomas, OHSO director. ODOT will be installing new signs in these areas to let drivers know they’re in a highway safety corridor and that law enforcement will apply a no-tolerance policy on unsafe traffic violations.
Collision data from the corridor projects will be evaluated regularly in order to measure progress, Thomas said.
