By Morgan Thomas - bio | email

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – The Lufkin Police Departments' month-old Traffic Crash Reduction Initiative appears to be working.

Just-released data shows a 19% decrease in auto accidents at targeted intersections.

That's compared to the first two weeks of June, last year.

The initiative focuses on intersections with the highest number of wrecks.

Officers are stepping-up patrols in those areas, targeting traffic law violators.
