Sioux Center Police and Other Area Agencies Participating in Safety Campaign
June 07, 2021 2:50pm
The Sioux Center Police Department is joining Iowa’s statewide Traffic Fatality Reduction Task Force in an effort to reduce deaths on Iowa roadways. The police department will be conducting a special enforcement initiative geared toward reduction of impaired drivers June 9-12.
This weekend, leading up to Father’s Day, was selected based on traffic data. Data from the past 10 years indicates Father’s Day weekend shows a higher incidence of impaired drivers on Iowa roads. Between 2016 and 2018, an average of nearly 439 deadly crashes happened each Father’s Day holiday period on roadways across the United States.
Sioux Center Police Chief Mike Halma says to help get everyone home safely, officers of the Sioux Center Police Department will join other law enforcement agencies from around Iowa to increase the focus on impaired driving this weekend.
The eventual goal for the number of fatalities in Iowa is ZERO, but the incremental goal for 2021 is below 300, down from 338 in 2020. If achieved, this will be the first time the number of Iowa traffic fatalities would be under 300 since 1925.
