LPD to crack down on traffic violators

LAWTON,Okla_Lawton police plan to start cracking down on traffic violations. The traffic division will begin stepping up its patrol at the city's busiest intersections.

Police will be looking for anyone who breaks a traffic law, but mostly for those who are speeding and running red lights. 
Lawton's Police Captain Craig Akard says it is likely that violators will drive away with more than a warning. 

"This is not going to be just a warning situation. They are looking for those people that are seriously violating the traffic laws. And if they stop them, they will most likely get a citation,"said Akard. 

He says the crack down is needed to combat the rising number of car accidents in Lawton.
