Killeen Police to Conduct Traffic Enforcement Detail

The Killeen Police Department Traffic Unit to conduct special red light detail.

The Killeen Police Department has reviewed the area of FM 2410 and FM 3470 over the past several months. The traffic unit has seen a high number of crashes where failure to control speed and running red lights have been the contributing factors.

On Thursday, March 20, 2014, officers will be conducting a special traffic detail in the area of FM 2410 and FM 3470 enforcing the law pertaining to running red lights.

Texas Transportation Code Sec. 544.007 Ran Red Light

(d) An operator of a vehicle facing only a steady red light shall stop at a clearly marked stop line. In the absence of a stop line, the operator shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection. A vehicle that is not turning shall remain standing until an indication to proceed is shown. After stopping, standing until the intersection may be entered safely, and yielding right-of-way to pedestrians lawfully in an adjacent crosswalk and other traffic lawfully using the intersection, the operator may:

(1) turn right.

The officers will be conducting this detail throughout the day and all violators will be cited.
