August 10, 2020 10:58am
Extra law enforcement, both locally and nationally, will be out around the upcoming Labor Day holiday, in support of the 2020 “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.
From August 21st through September 7th, officers will be tasked with keeping roads safe by removing impaired drivers and addressing other serious traffic violations.
During the 2018 Labor Day holiday period from August 31st through September 4th, there were 439 traffic fatalities nationwide. 43-percent of those fatalities involved drivers who had been drinking, and more than one-third of the fatalities involved drivers who were over the legal limit.
Last year in Iowa, there were six fatalities over the three-day Labor Day weekend. Three of these fatalities involved a drunk driver.
