Law enforcement agencies will step up enforcement of traffic violations starting this weekend, authorities announced.
The statewide "More Cops, More Stops" campaign, which runs Friday through Aug. 5, focuses on increasing patrols and cracking down on drunken driving, seat belt violations and other traffic offenses.
Of nearly 500 Oklahoma traffic fatalities in 2010, 60 percent were not wearing seat belts, 33 percent involved a drunken driver and 28 percent involved speeding, according to a Tulsa Police Department release.
Tulsa police plan to detail their involvement in the campaign at a press conference Thursday.
