Red-light violations targeted in Nov.

The Tulsa Police Department Riverside Traffic Unit will focus on red light violations in major commercial/retail corridors in south and west Tulsa (south of 11th Street and west of Sheridan Road) during the month of November.

Riverside Traffic Unit officers will be randomly monitoring all major intersections in the major commercial corridors in the division.  A citation issued for a red light violation will cost $200 and no warnings will be issued.

The Riverside Traffic Unit reminds drivers to remain alert, refrain from using all electronic communication devices and to pay special attention to all traffic signals.  Violation of a red light is a leading cause of injury collisions in intersections.  The Riverside Division has some of the most dangerous intersections in the City of Tulsa, and it is the Traffic Unit’s goal to reduce the frequency and severity of those collisions.
