The Oak Ridge Police are conducting focused traffic enforcement (Operation Drive Safe) on the Oak Ridge Turnpike and Illinois Ave from June 18, 2014 through Labor Day weekend.  The Oak Ridge Police are looking for motorists that are speeding, texting while driving, driving while impaired, and committing other traffic related violations. Officers are also looking for drivers who do not yield to pedestrians within a crosswalk.  The Oak Ridge Police Department wants everyone to have a safe summer and share the road whether it’s with another vehicle, cyclist, or pedestrian.
