On Saturday, September 5th Deputies with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit partnered with Officers from the Marshalltown Police Department for a speed enforcement project. The project was just outside of the Marshalltown city limits focused on Highway 30 traffic that was entering Marshalltown from the county. Speed checks were conducted using a handheld LIDAR speed measuring device and those violations radioed to Deputies and Officers positioned in the area. From 5:30PM to 8:00PM there were 30 traffic stops that resulted in:
OWI Arrests - Alcohol- 2
OWI Tested, but under the legal limit - 1
Speed Citations - 14
Speed Warnings - 5
Other Traffic Violation Citations - 4
Other Traffic Violation Warnings – 4
Excessive speed is one of the leading contributing factors in crashes resulting in injury or death. As of September 6, there have been 225 fatalities on Iowa roadways. This is especially concerning considering that number is higher than this time in any of the last five years. If this trend continues, Iowa could see a record number of fatalities in 2022. Along with speed, other dangerous driving behaviors such as impaired driving, distracted driving, and unbuckled occupants are leading factors that result in injury or death from motor vehicle crashes.
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to keeping the roadways safe for everyone who lives or travels in or through Marshall County.
