Tyler PD reminds people about 4th of July advisories

Posted: Updated:

Tyler Police Department:

TYLER (KYTX) - Tyler Police Department released information reminding people about advisories that should be followed for the 4th of July celebrations.

 

FIREWORKS

 

The Tyler Police Department reminds everyone that all unauthorized fireworks are prohibited in the City of Tyler unless you have obtained a special permit from the City.   All alcohol, smoking and fireworks are also not allowed in our City Parks that includes Lake Tyler Parks and Lindsey Park.  Please check your local media outlet for authorized fireworks programs.

 

CELEBRATORY GUNFIRE

 

Tyler Police also would like to remind the citizens that the discharge of firearms into the air in celebration is a violation of the law.  The act of discharging a firearm in the air is seen by some as a harmless expression of their parent culture or of good cheer.  The reckless use of any firearm is hazardous, and the act of indiscriminately discharging a firearm in celebration is not as harmless as some believe.

 

Celebratory Gunfire, that is, shots fired in the air, has caused injury, death and property damage worldwide. Any falling object of sufficient mass accelerated by gravity alone has the potential to cause serious injury or death. There are several documented instances of citizens being killed by gunfire in the United States alone.

 

TRAFFIC

 

The Tyler Police Department requests that drivers be aware of route changes for the 4th of July celebration at Lindsey Park on Spur 364.  Beginning at 8:30 p.m. Spur 364 at Greenbriar Road will be closed to all eastbound traffic.  Officers are requesting any resident who lives off Spur 364 between Loop 323 and Greenbriar Road, who needs to get to their residence during this time, to present their driver's license showing proof of their residency to the officers stationed at this location. Officers will allow residents only to proceed westbound on Spur 364.

 

At the completion of the program, the two left turn lanes eastbound on Highway 31 at Loop 323 will be closed.  Traffic will not be allowed to turn left, north, onto Loop 323 from the eastbound lanes of Highway 31.  Please be aware of officers in the roadway directing traffic.
