Traffic Officials Working to Slow Iowa's Rising Fatality Rate
June 09, 2021 10:01am
The Iowa State Patrol says its troopers have reported some of the most dangerous driving behaviors in the patrol’s 85-year history.
Traffic enforcement officials say they are cracking down on speeders, drunk drivers, and people distracted by their cell phones between now and the weekend.
Even when the coronavirus pandemic reduced traffic volume by 12-percent in the Hawkeye State, traffic fatalities went up last year.
Patrols will be increased starting today (Wed) and lasting through Saturday.
The goal is to keep Iowa traffic fatalities below 300 this year.
