Iowa’s multi-discipline Traffic Fatality Reduction Task Force was created in 2021 to implement educational, enforcement and legislative initiatives to help Iowa achieve the target of less than 300 traffic fatalities annually, with the ultimate goal of zero fatalities. Enforcement is one key element to reduce fatalities. The task force is led by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau, the Iowa Department of Transportation and the Iowa State Patrol.
For more information on the task force and its work, contact Pat Hoye, Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau at 515-725-6120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Iowa Traffic Fatality Reduction Task Force has identified four dates for special enforcement statewide.
Law enforcement partners are encouraged to fill out the Fatality Reduction Enforcement Log for each of the special enforcement periods. Please return the completed report within seven days to email@example.com
