BD)-- Stride Bank Center served as a donor center on Tuesday. The 16th annual Enid Community Challenge Blood Drive, sponsored by Our Blood Institute (OBI), invited Enid residents to give back to their community, by giving blood. The blood drive challenged local civic organizations to compete for the most blood donations. Junior Welfare League, Enid AM Too AMBUCS, Enid Noon AMBUCS, Enid AM AMBUCS and North Enid Lions Club accepted the challenge. Oklahoma is currently under red alert, meaning blood types in highest demand are in low supply. According to OBI, one blood transfusion can save up to three lives.  The top donating organization will be awarded $800, second place gets $500 and third place gets $300.

*Do Not Pass the Paint Truck. Passing without guided instruction from the paint crew is a moving violation. Passing on the right shoulder is also a moving violation. Both maneuvers put City crews at high risk.


*Stay within the Driving Lane. Driving in the yellow or white paint will transfer to your car tires, wheels and fenders, and damages your car. This also ruins the crew’s work.


*Be Patient and Give Yourself Plenty of Time. If you cannot avoid the work zone, drive safely and patiently behind the painting crew. Slow Down. Driving too fast in a work zone could cause injury or death.


*Respect the Painting Crews. Follow the directions of the traffic control staff and painting crews. Obey all signs posted on the vehicles.


*Avoid Being Ticketed. The Enid Police Department will be patrolling these moving work zones and will cite violations.
