Law enforcement warning Oklahoma drivers to slow down through new campaign

OKLAHOMA CITY –  Law enforcement officers across the country are encouraging drivers to slow down.

Officers from six states, including Oklahoma, are joining forces to catch speeding drivers.

The campaign kicked off Friday and will continue throughout the weekend.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says officers will be concentrating on high traffic roadways like I-35 and I-44 to reduce speeding-related crashes.

Nationwide, 27 percent of all crash fatalities are related to driving too fast for conditions.

Surprisingly, the majority of all speeding-related traffic fatalities are on roads with speed limits less than 55 miles per hour.
