The Ankeny Police Department, the Iowa State Patrol, and several metro agencies 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 Friday, Sept. 1, 2023. Officers from these law enforcement agencies will be in Ankeny for a large portion of the day.
The project's main goals are to enforce speed violations, seatbelt violations, and move-over violations. However, all traffic infractions will be enforced. 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 drive safely.
