Thanksgiving STEP Traffic Enforcement
Friday, 16 November 2012 15:36

Waterloo Police Officers along with deputy sheriffs, state troopers and Department of Transportation (DOT) officers will participate in a Thanksgiving holiday enforcement effort aimed at encouraging everyone to buckle up. 

This one-week enhanced enforcement period, spanning November 19–25, 2012, is another wave of Iowa’s special Traffic Enforcement Program (sTEP).  The sTEP program joins public outreach efforts with efforts of local enforcement agencies.  The goal is to convince all motorists of the importance of buckling up.  In addition to safety belt violations, officers will also be watching for impaired drivers and other moving violations.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
