Memorial Day is only a week away and a lot of people will be hitting the road for the weekend.
The Iowa Department of Public Safety says drivers can expect to see stepped up enforcement on roads next week for the upcoming holiday. The increased focus on seat belt enforcement is part of the national “Click It or Ticket” campaign taking place from May 20 through June 2.
Memorial Day considered by many as the traditional beginning of summer. It also sees an increase in road traffic.
The department says there were four traffic fatalities on Iowa roadways over the Memorial Day weekend last year.
