Ankeny Police, Iowa State Patrol and Iowa DOT conducting traffic enforcement project

The Ankeny Police Department, the Iowa State Patrol, and the Iowa Department of Transportation in conjunction with the Central Iowa Traffic Safety Task Force and the Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau will conduct a traffic safety awareness project on Interstate 35 on Friday, Sept. 16, 2022.  Officers from these law enforcement agencies will be participating.

The project's main goals are to enforce speed violations, seatbelt violations, and move over violations. However, all traffic infractions will be enforced.

As of Sept. 13, 2022, 231 people have lost their lives on Iowa roadways as a result of vehicle crashes.  42 percent of those who died were not wearing a seatbelt.

Unbelted drivers and passengers, excessive speed, impaired driving and distracted driving continue to be the leading contributing factors in fatality crashes.

The Ankeny Police department would like to remind all drivers to buckle up, drive sober, and to drive safely.
