Waterloo Police Will Participate In Special Traffic Enforcement Program

Waterloo Police officers will participate in an Iowa Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau (GTSB) Special Traffic Enforcement Program (sTEP) during the Thanksgiving holiday travel period.  Law enforcement agencies from across the state will be out in force along Iowa's roadways from November 24 - 30, 2008 to promote safe driving through the compliance of Iowa's traffic laws.

This effort is the first sTEP event for the 2008 - 2009 program year.  Officers will focus on speed, seat belt, child restraint and drunk driving violations.  Statistics show that seat belt usage helps reduce injuries and prevents loss of life.  With the help of the motoring public, education and law enforcement, Iowa has reached 92.9% seat belt usage, up from 91.4% a year ago.

Please join us and remember to buckle up, slow down and drive sober every time you travel along Iowa's roadways day or night.
