Marshall County - The Marshall County Sheriff's Office is reminding the motoring public during May 19 - June 1, Iowa law enforcement agencies will be participating in the National "Click It or Ticket" campaign. In an attempt to save lives and reduce serious injury crashes, local, county and state enforcement officers will be out in force making sure everyone is buckled up. Deputies will be working extra traffic enforcement during this time period.
During 2013, there were 317 fatalities in Iowa, a record low but still too many needless deaths. Last year, during the Memorial Day holiday, Iowa had 3 traffic fatalities, two of which were alcohol related. During the sTEP enforcement wave, there were 31,480 total traffic violations, including 12,450 speed, 2630 seat belt and 530 OWI stops.
The Marshall County Sheriff's Office continues to stress to the motoring public the importance of buckling up, slowing down and the need to drive sober to increase the odds of preventing or at least surviving a crash. Buckle up, be safe and enjoy your Memorial Day holiday. Remember, by simply taking two seconds to buckle up you double your odds of surviving a crash. So please, "Click it or Ticket".
