On September 12 the Iowa State Patrol along with the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office, Warren County Sheriff’s Office, and Decatur County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a special traffic project. We will concentrate our efforts on Interstate 35 from the Highway 5 bypass to the Missouri line. The goal of this special project is to reduce the number of traffic accidents and violations in this area by targeting seatbelts, impaired driving, distracted driving and excessive speed. The Iowa State Patrol will be utilizing all of its assets available including the Patrol Airwing, RADAR, and LIDAR. Help us reach our goal of under 300 traffic deaths in 2021.
