TULSA, Oklahoma – Slow down. That's the word from Tulsa police and firefighters as Green Country kids head back to class.

They're reminding drivers to slow down in school zones and for school buses.

"It's easy to become frustrated but there will be all kinds of children out and about and it's important to keep them safe," Tulsa Police Sergeant Paul Melchior said.

If you don't and you get stopped, you won't get a warning, but a trip in front of the judge instead.

"Every violator that gets issued a 'speeding in a school zone' citation will have to go to court, go before the municipal court judge before they are issued a fine,." Sergeant Melchior added.

Police will focus more of their attention on those school zones as the last students head back to class on Monday.
