Celebrate by buckling up this Fourth
DES MOINES — The Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau and Iowa law enforcement agencies are teaming up to save lives this Fourth of July holiday by asking everyone to buckle up. July 1-7, law enforcement agencies around the state will be conducting “high visibility” enforcement, cracking down on traffic violators, especially those motorists and occupants not buckled up.
Since its inception in 1986, Iowa’s seat belt law has been a primary law, allowing officers to pull over violators solely for not being belted. A seat belt violation citation will cost you $127.50. If that isn’t enough to entice you to buckle up, how about increasing your chances of surviving a crash by 50 percent. Banking on not being involved in a crash is simply not good math.
As of June 12, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation, Iowa has experienced 117 traffic fatalities in 2013.
