MOORE, Oklahoma -

A metro police department is sending out a warning that could end up costing some of its residents. 

Moore police said some basketball goals in area neighborhoods are safety hazards, and they have been popping up on the side of city streets, instead of peoples’ driveways—where they belong. 

Police said the goals hang over onto roadways, and are dangerous hazards to large passing vehicles.   

One of those basketball goals sits on the curb in front of Marie Olivera’s yard. 

She said police should have better things to do than to ticket people for something like this.

“It’s always something. It’s always something someone’s done," she said. 

Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said residents like Olivera should take this warning seriously.

“At night, you can’t see these basketball goals, most of them are black with black poles,” he said. “We’re not gonna go out in a rash of just writing a lot of tickets, it’s more telling people now so it doesn’t come to that.”
