You should always drive the speed limit, and that law will be particularly enforced beginning this week in Texarkana.

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department, along with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, will launch a tough new speed enforcement blitz for Texarkana, Arkansas under the tagline: “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine.” The intensified enforcement efforts against speeding drivers underscore the severity of the problem, both locally and across the nation.

During the week of July 16, through July 22, the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department is joining with other local and state law enforcement agencies in targeting speed violators. The goal of this campaign is to save lives and to make drivers aware that driving above the posted speed limit is dangerous.

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department asks that you slow down and enjoy the drive. For more information on traffic safety check out the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.
