Red-Light Runners Beware

Drivers in Tyler will notice more officers out on the roads this week. Tyler police officers are out in full force this week watching for drivers running red lights. It's part of "STEP" or the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program.

"STEP" is a federally funded program to reduce traffic hazards by putting extra officers on the street.

For your first offense you can expect a $210 fine. Last year Tyler PD handed out over 2,000 light citations.
