If you got busted for speeding or some other moving violation on an Iowa highway last week, you were far from alone. Authorities have released a report on the outcome of the special traffic enforcement project conducted last week on U-S Highways 20 and 30, spanning from the Mississippi River to the Missouri River. More than 200 officers from federal, state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies took part in “Operation Double Aught,” a project that covered a two-county-wide corridor, from one end of the state, to the other, last Thursday. The goal was to increase seat belt usage across the state, reduce impaired driving, and reduce fatalities and injuries. Over 2,400 drivers were contacted, and authorities issued numerous citations, including 343 seatbelt and 42 child restraint violations, over 1,000 speeding tickets, and 20 OWI’s.
