OKLAHOMA CITY- Oklahoma City is one of the first schools to head back to the classroom this year in the Sooner State.

Students will be at their desks starting Monday.

Officials have a back-to-school warning for drivers.

On Friday, AAA wanted to bring attention to the fact that 40,000 students will be hitting the streets and sidewalks next week.

Capt. Brian Williford, with the Oklahoma City Police Department, said, “Our motorcycle officers and divisional officers will be out in force, aggressively looking at drivers who are disobeying the speed limit, which is 25 miles an hour in school zones.”

Drivers who are caught speeding will face a $200 fine.

Parents should also help their children learn where crossing guards will be working so they can get across intersections safely.
