Lawton police want to help educate the public during this holiday season about the dangers of drinking and driving and texting and driving.
This all stems from the fact the department has dealt with 5 fatality accidents and 51 injury accidents in the past 30 days.
So now the Lawton Police Department Traffic Unit will be working various areas throughout the city to enforce traffic laws and educate drivers. Tip number one is to be cautious and aware of your surroundings while driving.
Another piece of advice it to remember that it is illegal to text and drive or to use other electronic devices while operating a motor vehicle that would cause you to not pay attention to your driving.
The traffic unit will be enforcing all traffic ordinances with maximum effort on Cache Road and Gore Blvd throughout the holidays.
