ADA, Okla. -- The City of Ada is pleading with motorists to slow down when driving through Wintersmith Park.

There have been several complaints of drivers flying through the 20 mile-per-hour zone, putting runners and park-goers at risk.

Ada police Detective Joe Machetta said failing to slow down could get expensive for violators.

"What people need to understand and realize is, the minimum speeding ticket that we have in the City of Ada is $151," he said. "I don't know about anybody, but I can't really afford to just toss out $150 left and right.

Call 911 if you observe speeding motorists at Wintersmith Park.
