Iowa Law Enforcement Stepping Up Efforts Through Memorial Day Holiday
Iowa law enforcement agencies will be participating in a national effort to crack down on safety belt enforcement. The Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau says beginning today, agencies are taking part in the national "click it or ticket" campaign, which will run through June 1 and include the Memorial Day weekend. During last year's Memorial Day holiday, Iowa had three traffic fatalities, two of which were alcohol related. In 2013, Iowa saw 317 fatalities, which were a record low.
