(TULSA, Okla.) During the month of April, the Tulsa Police Department will focus on red & yellow light violations within the City of Tulsa.   Tulsa Police Traffic Officers and Motorcycle Officers will be randomly monitoring all major intersections within the City of Tulsa during this enforcement action, as these violations are a leading cause of severe and fatal collisions.  A citation issued for a red light violation carries a fine of $250, a citation issued for a yellow light violation carries a fine of $200; there will be no warnings issued.   The Tulsa Police Department reminds drivers to remain alert, refrain from using all electronic communication devices, buckle their seatbelts, secure children in a properly installed child restraint system and to pay special attention to all traffic signals.   Violation of a red light is a leading cause of injury collisions in intersections.  The focus of this enforcement action will be primarily on the most dangerous intersections and major commercial/retail corridors throughout the City of Tulsa, with the goal of reducing the frequency and severity of collisions occurring as a result of traffic light violations.
