OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Oklahoma City police spoke out Monday afternoon concerning a recent increase in unsafe speeds on Oklahoma City roads, as reported by KFOR.

Oklahoma City has turned into what the Oklahoma City Highway Patrol is calling the “Wild West.” As Covid-19 continues to keep many at home and off the roads, Oklahoma City Police have reported vehicles going at speeds over 100 mph. In one case, a motorbike was reported to be traveling 146 mph.

The Oklahoma City Police Department urges drivers to slow down and recognize the consequences for yourself and others on the road when you do not follow the speed limit.
